Prioritising local health care

The Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) took over responsibility for planning and buying health care for our local population on April 1 this year.  Eight months on our chairman reflects on what has been achieved.

Call to action survey

We’re asking South Gloucestershire residents to put forward their views about the NHS, locally and nationally, and what they think our future priorities should be.  We want the public, patients, carers and staff to get involved in discussing the future of the NHS, so that we can plan how best to deliver services, now and in the years ahead.  Please complete this survey and share it amongst your own networks.  The deadline for submissions is the 31st December 2013.  Your views will inform the draft medium strategic plan which will be published early next year.
