Upcoming events for patients in SouthwarkPosted: January 24, 2014
I hope this finds you well. I wanted to make you aware or remind you of a number of engagement activities NHS Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group is holding in the next few weeks.
1. Patient Leadership Training
Information about our Patient Leadership Training session that will be taking place on 19 February 2014 is attached to this email.
This session has been developed from comments and suggestions from patients who are involved with the Engagement and Patient Experience Committee as well as the Locality Patient Participation Groups in Southwark. This session will provide you with a clear understanding of background and contextual information about the national NHS landscape as it is now. There will also be specific focus on what NHS Southwark CCG is responsible for and the role that patients and the patient voice has in the work of the CCG and local services.
If you are interested in attending you can book a place directly or by contacting the CCG by email. We would be grateful if you could also promote this to colleagues within your groups and networks to encourage as many people as possible to attend and benefit.
NHS Southwark CCG is also planning future sessions which will be focussing on enabling people to develop specific skills involved in the effective running and conduct of patient participation groups and meetings.
2. Improving Access to Primary Care
There will also be an engagement event, on 26 February 2014, looking at the proposals for future plans to improve access to primary care services. This event will be building on what local people have previously told us through engagement events last year which have all contributed to the development of the proposals for local services. You can book a space for this event directly or by contacting the CCG.
3. What Goals and Outcomes are important to you and your family from Health and Care services?
There are still a few spaces available for this event, on Tuesday 28 January 2014. The event will be looking at shaping services across Southwark and Lambeth around what is most important for patients and their families. Your comments and contributions are needed to help make this happen. You can book a space directly or by contacting the CCG.
