NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Southport and Formby CCG are holding their next meetings in July, with doctors, nurses and other health professionals discussing the performance of local health services, such as hospitals and community care.
NHS Southport and Formby CCG will hold its meeting on Wednesday 4 July with NHS South Sefton CCG’s meeting taking place the following day on Thursday 5 July.
Dr Craig Gillespie, local GP and NHS South Sefton CCG interim chair, said: “For the governing body it’s important that the public are always part of the decisions we make, this is why it’s great to see local people in attendance.
