Residents have a chance to have their say on NHS services in South-east London this week.
NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – the organisation which plans and buys most local health services – is inviting residents to take part in its Big Conversation workshop at Charlton House on Friday.
They will have the opportunity to scrutinise proposals under Greenwich’s clinical commissioning strategy (CCS) and work with NHS commissioners to ensure services are fit for the future.
Dr Ellen Wright, a local GP and chairwoman of NHS Greenwich CCG, said: “The first Big Conversation took place in the early spring, and following feedback from local people and our community and voluntary sector partners, the CCG developed some priority areas for our clinical commissioning strategy.
“We now want to check and develop these priority areas with residents at the Big Conversation event at Charlton House.
“Residents’ views will guide our commissioning decisions for the next three years, so it is vitally important that we hear from local people who use NHS services.”
In addition to attending the Big Conversation event at Charlton House, residents in Greenwich are asked to take part in a short survey at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/F3D99W.
The survey closing date is Tuesday, July 31.
