Tell us your experiences of using local health services

People across Bradford city are being encouraged to get involved and help shape future local health services.

Clinical leaders from Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are inviting local people to have their say and share their views about health services.

The ‘Have your say’ session on Wednesday 3 July, from 11.30am to 12.45pm, is a great opportunity for local people to get involved with the work of the CCG.

Dr Akram Khan, clinical chair of Bradford City CCG, will join colleagues at Carlisle Business Centre to meet patients and members of the public at the event.

As well as hearing what people want from their local health services and what they think are priority areas for future spending, discussions will also centre on the CCG’s plans for a civil assembly – to create a patients’ forum across the city. The session will also focus on the pressure on A&E and how people can help the NHS by choosing the right service, at the right time and in the right place.
“Our vision is to reduce health inequalities and turn our key priorities into real actions that can make a positive difference for the people in our area – and our patients are central to making that happen,” said Dr Khan.

“We want people to help us improve their health and wellbeing by telling us what’s good and bad about local health services, so we can learn from their experiences, and start to change things for the better. This session is designed to be a very open discussion about how NHS money is spent locally and what services our patients need most.”

Following this session, Bradford City CCG’s governing body meeting will be held in public at 1pm. The agenda and associated papers are available on the CCG website.

Everyone is welcome to attend the session; people can register their interest by email to: fiona.stephens@bradford.nhs.uk or call: 01274 256062.
