Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has held its second Annual General Meeting.
On 17 September, local residents were able to find out more about the CCG’s achievements from the past year and its vision for the future – ‘Working with the people of Camden to achieve the best health for all’.
Presentations on the day outlined Camden CCG’s key priorities and went into detail on its Children’s, Long Term Conditions and Cancer programmes. The CCG also developed a film to demonstrate the benefits of its integrated Frail and Elderly programme through the Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT), highlighting the important work being done across the borough. This film can be viewed on the Camden CCG website - http://www.camdenccg.nhs.uk/news-articles/Frail-and-Elderly-programme.htm
Members of the public were invited to speak directly to the members of the Camden CCG Governing Body as part of an open question and answer session.
In addition, a marketplace hall allowed guests to find out more information on local community health services. This included local hospital trusts, London Borough of Camden, Public Health and Voluntary Action Camden, as well as a number of stalls focusing on Camden CCG’s various projects and priorities.
Dr Caz Sayer, a local GP and Chair of Camden CCG said:
“At Camden CCG, we’re committed to listening to what people want and empowering them to be more involved in their care. It was fantastic to see so many people at the AGM event and we really appreciate all of your feedback.
“As part of this commitment, we have also been working with the various different organisations providing health and social care across the borough to develop a more joined-up approach. Collaboration and partnership working is central to providing effective, patient centred care.”
