How to get involved
There are many ways to get involved with Greenwich CCG to help shape local healthcare services.
Help shape the future of your NHS - Join the conversation at public events in July
The NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 years time we have a service fit for the future. The NHS Long Term Plan has been drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to create an ambitious but realistic plan.
As part of the Long Term Plan the six CCGs - Bexley, Bromley, Lambeth, Lewisham, Greenwich and Southwark - are aiming to move to an Integrated Care System (ICS) for south east London as of 1 April 2010. The aim is to deliver the best health, wellbeing and care by developing a strong, safe and sustainable system. Among the many benefits for patients will be more money for front line services and improved and joined up care. You can read more about this here.
We want local people, in particular patients and carers, to take part in conversations and plans in Greenwich and in south east London. There are lots of events coming up so please come along and help shape the future of your NHS.
