Annual General Meeting – Thursday 15th September

Ask questions and find out about health services in Bucks at Aylesbury Vale and Chiltern CCGs 2016 AGMs, September 15

agm-posterThe two NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups serving Buckinghamshire will be holding their 2016 AGMs on Thursday, September 15– their first since joining forces to strengthen the way they can buy health services for residents of the county.

Aylesbury Vale and Chiltern CCGs are now working together in collaboration, with a single, shared management team.

Their AGMs will be held from 6.30pm to 8.00pm, across two venues. The lead venue, The Gateway Building in Aylesbury will host both meetings, with a live feed being broadcast at the Chiltern District Council Offices in Amersham. CCG staff will attend both venues, and there will be presentations and displays on the organisations’ performance over the last 12 months and their future plans.

All members of the public are welcome to attend either venue, where they can ask questions about local healthcare issues.

The meeting will also be live streamed, meaning anyone with an internet connection can watch. Questions can be submitted ahead of time, asked live or tweeted during the event, when they can be answered by CCG staff.

Lou Patten, Accountable Officer for the CCGs, said: “These are exciting times for health services in Buckinghamshire, but we have challenges ahead. With our two CCGs working together to innovate and cooperate, we are determined to deliver the services and quality outcomes our population deserves. We hope as many people as possible attend our AGMs so we can let them know about our progress over the last year and our plans for the future.”

Dr Raj Bajwa, newly appointed Clinical Chair for Chiltern CCG, added: “Our CCGs have good track records of delivering for our population, and we are determined to continue to improve our performance and outcomes.

“To do this we must ensure we are meeting the needs of our population and the AGMs are the perfect opportunity for us to do this. Please come along to ask questions and let us know where you have concerns about health services in Bucks and where services are performing well.”

The AGM will take place at The Gateway, Aylesbury Vale District Council, Gatehouse Road Aylesbury HP19 8FF and will be streamed at the Chiltern District Council Offices, King George V Road, Amersham, HP6 5AW.
