All the fun of the fair!


All the fun of the fair!
14 August 2017

Eastern Cheshire people are to be given a chance to quiz NHS leaders who plan and buy their healthcare.

A public question time will take place at Macclesfield Town Hall on Wednesday 30 August as part of our annual meeting starting at 2pm.

The meeting will run until 2.45pm, also featuring presentations on our achievements including:

  • Commissioning the best hospital care in England for people who have had a stroke
  • Being rated outstanding for cancer care
  • Being ranked sixth in the country for looking after people with long-term conditions.

In addition, we will describe our plans to balance the books as demand for care continues to outstrip growth in funding.The meeting will be followed by a Health and Wellbeing Fair running until 5pm.

Dr Paul Bowen, our clinical chair and GP with McIlvride Medical Practice, Poynton said: “The fair is an opportunity for providers of our commissioned services to showcase the support they can give. For example, there will be information on losing weight, stopping smoking and finding help for loved ones with chronic illnesses.

“What’s more, visitors to the fair will be able to find out how to get involved in shaping care services in Eastern Cheshire – for example by joining the Patient Participation Group at their GP practice, joining our Readers’ Panel or attending meetings of our HealthVoice patient and carer reference group.”

Partners showcasing their services will include:

Dr Bowen added: “Don’t miss this opportunity to find out about the fantastic health and wellbeing services on offer in Eastern Cheshire.”
