People in Reading are invited to hear about plans for health services and ask questions about the NHS at a special event in the town next week.
On Thursday 9 March, South Reading Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and North and West Reading CCG, the organisations responsible for making sure the right health services are available to residents, are jointly hosting a meeting for anyone who lives in area and would like to find out:
• More about the health of Reading’s population and plans to improve the wellbeing of the town
• The top health priorities over the next two years
• How the CCG will manage a difficult financial situation
Presentations from doctors directly involved in innovative plans to improve services and representatives from Reading Borough Council’s public health team will outline the local health landscape and pave the way for a question and answer session with a panel of healthcare professionals.
The event, which is to be held at Reading Town Hall from 10.30am until 12.30pm will be chaired by Wendy Bower, the CCGs’ Lay Member for Patient and Public Engagement, who encouraged people to get involved:
“This event is a great opportunity to come and find out about the work being done to secure quality health services in our town. It’s also your chance to put questions to those responsible, to share your experiences of healthcare in Reading and give your opinions on the plans for the future.”
