Three engagement events in a week to discuss local health and care services

Three public engagement events are taking place next week for local people to discuss health and care services across Brighton and Hove and the wider region. As part of the ongoing Big Health and Care Conversation, Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are giving the public the opportunity to give their views and to discuss what matters most to them.

On Tuesday 26 September (12noon – 1pm), an open forum is being held at Jubilee Library in Brighton, where anyone can come to ask members of the CCG Governing Body questions or discuss issues they have. There is no need to book to attend this forum.

On Wednesday 27 September (10.30-12.30), local GPs will be discussing the challenges GP services face and what is being done to address them. This event will be held at the Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton; places can be booked by logging onto:

On Thursday 28 September (18:00– 20:00), local doctors and leaders from the CCG and Local Authority will be discussing how health and social care is transforming across the region as part of the Sussex and East Surrey Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP). This is the second event in two weeks focused on the STP and is being held in the evening to give people the chance who could not attend the event previously held during the daytime. The event is being held at Hove Town Hall, Hove. Places can be booked by logging onto:

Dr David Supple, Clinical Chair of Brighton and Hove CCG, said: “As part of the Big Health and Care Conversation, we want to hear from as many people as possible so we hope having three engagement events in a week and at different times of the day will help give more people the chance to give their views. A number of events and engagement activity have already taken place and we have tried to speak with groups and individuals who may not have had the chance to give their views in the past, including older people, young people, people who are homeless and those who do not have English as their first language. A significant amount of engagement is planned for the weeks and months ahead so there will be many opportunities for people to get involved and to give their views.”
