Southport residents enjoy a ‘Big Chat’ at NHS annual review

27th September 2017

Over 35 Southport and Formby residents turned out for the local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) ‘Annual Review meets Big Chat’ event on Tuesday 12 September.

For the third year running, NHS Southport and Formby CCG combined its annual review meeting with a ‘Big Chat’ style event held at Lord Street West Church in Southport.

During the event residents got to hear about the CCG’s performance and achievements over the past 12 months and were also invited to give their views about the CCG’s latest work to shape services.

Self care was the theme throughout the event, how people should examine their options when they become unwell and how they can use the 5 ways to wellbeing to improve their health with a session hosted by Sefton CVS.

Dr Rob Caudwell, chair of the CCG, said: “The format of this event worked well and we welcomed discussions with residents on several topics, including over the counter medications and self care.

“We reminded guests about the options available to them when they or someone they know become unwell and we also had a presentation from Sefton CVS on the 5 ways to wellbeing which was really informative.

“Guests also heard about the CCG’s Shaping Sefton programme, how we make key decisions and about Personal Health Budgets and how they can cater for individual needs.”

Copies of the CCGs annual reports were available for guests to take away along with leaflets on local services available to them.
