MEMBERS of the public are invited to the annual general meeting (AGM) of local NHS leaders, West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
The AGM will be held on Tuesday 27 September 2016 at the Evermoor Community Hub (1 Birleywood, Skelmersdale, WN8 9HR) from 11.30am (for registration) until 3.00pm and is a chance to learn more about the local NHS and ask questions directly to the management team in a panel style question and answer session.
Dr John Caine, chair of NHS West Lancashire CCG and local GP, said: “Our annual AGM is a great opportunity for our residents to learn more about the highlights and challenges their local NHS has faced from the year gone by and to look at the exciting plans for the year ahead.
“The AGM also provides an opportunity for residents who attend to have any questions and queries that they may have answered by our Governing Body, which consists of clinicians and senior managers within the CCG.”
Once again, this year’s AGM is being run in partnership with the West Lancs CVS as part of the regular Health Network events, which includes market stalls from a number of local community and voluntary sector organisations.
Greg Mitten, chief officer of West Lancs CVS, said: “We’re delighted to be working with West Lancashire CCG with their annual AGM.”
“We’re particularly looking forward to using this event as an opportunity to showcase some of the fantastic community and voluntary groups that are doing some incredible work for the people of West Lancashire.”
