News from: NHS Berkshire West CCG
A wide spread engagement process on the future arrangements for NHS commissioning in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West was launched this week.
It will last until 1 December and there are full details on the Berkshire West CCG website at www.berkshirewestccg.nhs.uk. You can download the survey at www.surveymonkey.co.uk. Fact sheets giving details of the proposals are also going to be sent to all surgeries in Berkshire West so patients can get involved.
The website information outlines proposals for a single Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) covering Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB)
Dr Abid Irfan, Chair of Berkshire West CCG said: “Over the past year, we have been exploring how we can work more effectively and efficiently across the BOB healthcare system to achieve our shared ambition.
“We all have a responsibility to make sure valuable resources are used wisely and in the best way to support people in living longer, happier, healthier and more independently into their old age. We want to make sure people have access to quality healthcare whilst also cutting the health inequalities that exist today.”
Your views will be fully considered by health leaders and will help inform any recommendations to CCG Governing Bodies.
