In January 2014 the CCG invited the public and representatives of voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations to attend an event as part of our planning for 2014/15.
Attendees were informed about the proposed commissioning intentions and high level strategic plans for the following work programmes:
• Primary Care
• Care at or Closer to Home
• Planned Care.
As well as hearing a presentation about the CCG’s proposed future strategic planning intentions, those present were asked to participate in discussion groups focused on the work programmes above.
The purpose of the discussion groups was to gain opinions of the proposed plans, and to gain insight into what works well and what could be improved for each of the work areas. Attendees were also asked how the CCG could improve engagement with the public and VCS when taking the priority areas forward.
This report sets out the findings from that event.
