Have your say

A GROUP of GPs which buys in health services for Portsmouth is to host its first Annual General Meeting.

The Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) replaced the city’s former primary care trust in April this year, as the city’s main planner and commissioner of local health services as part of the government’s NHS reforms.

Dr Jim Hogan, the CCG’s chief clinical officer, said: ‘As we are still in our first year of formal business, we don’t have any formal accounts or annual reports to present.

‘So we will be giving an overview of our work to date and our plans for the future.

‘We are delighted that more than 50 stakeholders and members of the public have said that they are planning to attend.

‘We will be seeking their ideas and solutions about the NHS “A Call to Action” – and what issues should be considered to ensure the values of the NHS are maintained.’

The AGM is on Wednesday, October 2, in St James’ Hospital, in Locksway Road, Milton, from 6pm to 8pm.
