Uttlesford residents will be able to ask questions of NHS board members at a serious of public meetings due to be held across West Essex, with the first taking place in Saffron Walden on Thursday (May 28).
The NHS West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) invited people to attend a public board meeting at the Uttlesford District Council offices’ Council Chamber in Saffron Walden at 9.30am.
And the main topic on the agenda was the Integrated Care Programme – currently getting underway in West Essex – which aims to improve local people’s experiences of health and social care by enabling health and social care professionals from different organisations to work more closely together.
Clare Morris, Chief Officer at NHS West Essex CCG, said: “The Integrated Care Programme will support people to take more responsibility for their own health, identify risks sooner, help to avoid crises and manage the increasing demand on public services.”
Further meetings are due to take place throughout the year in Saffron Walden, Ongar and Harlow.

Although the public may attend these meetings, they may not take part. However the final part of the meeting will provide an opportunity to ask questions of the Board.
