Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group’s public meetings on Wednesday 14 September at the Cypriot Centre were a great success and attracted around 140 Haringey residents from diverse backgrounds. Earlier this year the Bridge Renewal Trust worked with the CCG to get residents’ feedback on the health areas and services they would like to address, which informed the structure of the meetings.
Residents were able to discuss various services, such as primary care, mental health, care of the elderly and urgent care with CCG staff and Governing Body members, including local GPs.
Cathy Herman, Haringey CCG’s Governing Body Lay Member said: “We were so pleased to welcome so many people to our public meetings. It was great to hear so many different voices. Many thanks to all who came and to the Bridge Renewal Trust for doing such a great job for us in working with local people to find out the issues that they wanted to discuss and encouraging people to attend.”
Rachel Hughes, Chair of The Bridge Renewal Trust added: “It’s been a great pleasure working with the CCG to raise awareness of the public meetings and identify priorities that local people wanted to talk about. It was particularly good to see hundreds of people including many who do not normally participate come to the meetings.”
