Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commisioning Group

Patient, public and carer engagement forum meetings

The forum is somewhere where we can talk with our patients, carers, and the public and give our local communities the opportunity to share their opinions with decision-makers from the CCG, allowing them to contribute directly to decisions affecting healthcare provision.

Come along to the meeting chaired by Chris Piercy – Executive Director of Nursing, Patient Safety and Quality for Newcastle CCG. Take this opportunity to gain information about services available to older people across Gateshead and Newcastle.

Lesley Bainbridge who is a Lead Nurse for Integration, Care Closer to Home and Frailty, will provide information and an opportunity for you to have your say on current and future services. Stalls will be available for you to get further information on local organisations and services.

Date:   Monday 2nd September 2019

Time:       2:30pm – 5:00 pm (Registration from 2:00pm)

Venue:  Gateshead Civic Centre, Bewicks B, NE8 1HH
