Health chiefs to meet in Leyburn

Local health chiefs will hold their next board meeting in Richmondshire.

The next governing body meeting for NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG) will take place on Thursday 27 September from 1.30pm at Seminar Room, Tennants Auctioneers, Harmby Road, Leyburn, DL8 5SG.

The meeting, which is open to members of the public to observe only, will hear reports about the progress of specific initiatives being led by the CCG as well as information about finance and performance.

Dr Charles Parker, local GP and Clinical Chair of the CCG, said: “Our Governing Body meetings enable us to review projects, discuss next steps and agree decisions for improving the future of local health services.

“Although Governing Body business meetings are held in public for observation, they are different from ‘public meetings’ as many agenda items require extensive discussion and attention from members.

“Members of the public are welcome to observe and submit questions for response, prior to the meeting.”

The meeting will open with a Q&A period of up to 10 minutes for members of the public to raise a particular matter or ask a question.

All items and questions must be submitted in advance by 5pm on Monday 24 September 2018.

If you would like to submit an item or question to the Governing Body, please do so by emailing
