Come and hear of changes in the NHS

LOCAL residents can find out more about NHS reforms by attending the next annual meeting of NHS Calderdale.

It takes place at NHS Calderdale, Dean Clough, Halifax, on Thursday from 3pm to 4.30pm.

The Calderdale GP commissioning consortium will give a presentation and a panel of speakers from NHS Calderdale will talk about achievements during the past 12 months.

There will also be a presentation from the Director of Public Health for Calderdale on the local major health challenges and from the shadow Health and Wellbeing Board, which brings together health services, social care and public health.

The meeting will be followed by a Q&A session and the launch of this year’s annual report and accounts.

Mike Potts, chief executive of NHS Calderdale, said: “Anybody who listens to the news will know these are changing times for the NHS.

“I hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to join us to hear about our work with local GPs on the future of commissioning of health services and our many achievements during the past year, as well as what the future holds.

“This is your opportunity to find out what we have been doing in your area and for you to ask questions and tell us what you think so we can continue to improve services.”
