Members of the public are invited to attend the virtual public meeting of NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG).

NHS HMR CCG will hold its virtual Governing Body meeting on Friday 20 November at 9:30am. The meeting is being held virtually due to national lockdown restrictions and will be live streamed from 9.30am and available to watch live here on the CCG YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/NHSHMRCCG

Governing body meetings take place every two months and they are where official business is discussed and formal decisions are made about everything from policies to which health services will be commissioned. The papers for the Governing Body meeting will be available to view seven days before the meeting and can be found on the Governing Body page of our website.

You can submit a question that will be endeavoured to be answered at the beginning of the meeting. You can do this by emailing us at hmr.ccg@nhs.net, or by filling in the form at; https://www.hmr.nhs.uk/get-in-touch/contact-us/governing-body-meeting-enquiry. Please note questions are to be sent before 12 noon on Thursday 19 November.

Among the items on the meeting agenda are updates on Emergency Preparedness Resilience and Response, Joint Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) and board members will also hear updates on the work of the various CCG committees.

Dr Chris Duffy, local GP and HMR CCG Chair said: “We understand how important it is for local people to get involved in local health services and it is unfortunate that due to Covid-19 and the national lockdown restrictions that we are still unable to hold our meetings face-to-face. Streaming our meetings virtually gives members of the public the opportunity to watch the meeting and also the opportunity to ask questions prior to the meeting starting. If you are unable to join the meeting, you can follow us on Twitter @NHSHMR for live tweets from the meeting.”
