Have your say on future of Sunderland health services

Have your say

WEARSIDERS are being invited to a meeting on the future of public health treatment in Sunderland.

The GP-led health commissioning group, NHS Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is calling on residents to attend an event on Thursday at the Stadium of Light.

The event has been organised following NHS England’s recent call to staff, the public and politicians to help the NHS meet future demand.

Sunderland CCG’s chairman, Dr Ian Pattison, said: “We would like people to attend this event to help us reflect on, and review, our five-year plan.”

Feedback from the meetings will be published and used to shape a longer-term strategy.

The document will need to be in place by early next year to feed into commissioning plans for GP-led Clinical Commissioning Groups in 2014/15 and 2015/16.
