Slough’s Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is holding its fourth annual meeting (AGM) next month.
Residents are warmly invited to attend the free event on Tuesday 5 September at The Copthorne Hotel, Cippenham Lane, Slough, SL1 2YE from 1.30pm to 4.30pm. Registration and light refreshments will be from 1pm to 1.30pm. Parking will be free on the day.
Building on the successes of previous years, the event is an opportunity for people to hear about key achievements and challenges over the past year, as well as plans for the coming year.
New this year is an interactive session on health and wellbeing, hosted by Apna Virsa. Aimed at all ages and abilities, this is an opportunity to learn quick and simple techniques for staying fit in a fun way.
In addition, marketplace stalls will display information about the local sustainability and transformation partnership (STP), which involves NHS organisations and Slough Borough Council working more closely together to improve health and care over the next five years.
Attendees will also be able to provide feedback on local NHS services, informing clinicians and staff of what is working well and where improvements could be made.
Dr Jim O’Donnell, Clinical Chair for the CCG and locally practising GP, said “I’m really excited to have the interactive session for people to learn quick and easy techniques for staying fit. Keeping our whole community healthy is an important focus of our work.
“Here in Slough, the NHS has a lot to be proud of locally, especially as we have just been rated ‘Outstanding’ by NHS England. This event is an opportunity for us to showcase some of our work which is helping to make a difference to the lives of so many patients.
“The event is very much for local communities and for them to get involved in their local health service.”
