The NHS Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are hosting a public event next month.

The purpose of the event is to bring together patients, public and carers to share their experiences and find out how they can help shape local health services for the future.

It wil be held on Tuesday December 3 from 10.30am to 1pm at the Benn Hall in Newbold Road, Rugby.

The CCG is formed of 77 GP practices across Coventry and Rugby. They are responsible for planning healthcare services, paying for them and ensuring the quality is of a high standard for local patients.

Dr Jeff Cotterill, a local GP and Esther Peapell from the CCG will present further information about the CCG and the priorities that have been identified for local services. There will be an opportunity for attendees to discuss how they can shape the CCGs decisions about which services are needed in the local area.

Dr Cotterill, commented: “So far this year the CCG has listened to your concerns about transport, parking, cancelled outpatient clinics and having a more local eye service. We have taken action on all of these issues and are keen to learn more about what is working well and what could be improved.”

Jan Butterworth of NHS England will also be there to discuss the challenges facing the NHS as a whole. She will be asking for opinions on how the NHS can be retained for the future, what future opportunities there are and what needs to change to deliver high quality healthcare.
