People living in Fylde and Wyre are invited to see local NHS decision-making in action next week.

The next meeting of the NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Governing Body will take place at the NHS Wesham Offices in Derby Road, from 1pm to 3pm, on Tuesday 21 November.

Space for observers is limited so anyone wishing to attend must email fwccg.enquiries@nhs.net in order to guarantee a seat in the audience.

The role of the Governing Body is to oversee the work of the CCG and ensure arrangements are in place to allow the organisation to effectively carry out its duties.

Members of the public are invited to attend and observe the meeting and can also submit any questions they want to be asked in writing in advance of the meeting.

There will also be an opportunity during the meeting to ask questions about any item on the agenda.

Mary Dowling, chair of the CCG’s Governing Body, said: “The CCG Governing Body makes some very important decisions and we encourage people to come along and be part of it.

“We believe it is important to hold meetings across Fylde and Wyre, not just at our Wesham offices, to give everyone an opportunity to come and see how we make these decisions.”

Questions can be submitted via http://www.fyldeandwyreccg.nhs.uk/contact-us. Alternatively, people can write to the Governing Body secretary at NHS Fylde and Wyre CCG, Derby Road, Wesham, PR4 3AL.
