Residents invited to Bracknell and Ascot CCG AGM

NHS Bracknell and Ascot Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is holding its fourth annual meeting (AGM) next month.

Residents are invited to attend the free event on Wednesday 6 September at Ascot Racecourse, High Street, Ascot, SL5 7JX, from 1.30pm to 6pm. There will be light refreshments and free parking available in Car Park 3 which will be signposted.

Building on the successes of previous years, the event is an opportunity for people to hear about key achievements and challenges over the past year, as well as plans for the coming year.

In addition, marketplace stalls will display key information around how The NHS and local authorities plan to work more closely together to improve health and care over the next five years.

Attendees will also be able to provide feedback on local NHS services, informing clinicians and staff of what is working well and where improvements could be made.

Dr William Tong, Clinical Chair for the CCG and recently retired local GP, said “The NHS in Bracknell and Ascot has a lot to be proud of, especially as we have just been rated ‘Outstanding’ by NHS England. This event is an opportunity for us to showcase some of our work which is helping to make a difference to the lives of so many patients.

“The event is very much for local communities and for them to get involved in their local health service.”

Anyone who would like to ask specific questions at the AGM is asked to email them ahead of the event to communications.eastberksccgs@nhs.net.
