CCG merger consultation

A number of you had written to me concerned about the proposals to create a single strategic commissioning organisation out of all of the local CCGs.

Although public meetings were taking place throughout Staffordshire, none were in Tamworth.  I asked whether they could consider hosting an event in our area and the team have kindly obliged.

If you would like to attend to discuss the CCG, visit Tamworth Community Fire Station, Marlborough Way, B77 2JN on Thursday 20 June from 3:30-4:30pm (doors open at 3). To book a place click here

You can also share your views using their online form here, by emailing mlcsu.involvement@nhs.net or by telephoning 01785 854125.

I understand the team hope to create one group to cut back on admin costs, design and purchase local health and care services in bulk and because they largely work closely together in their current day to day work.
