The new Commissioning Group for healthcare

The Harrogate and Rural District Clinical Commissioning Group known as HaRD CCG was created in 2012 and one of its first public consultations was in relation to Mental Health Care for vulnerable adults. This afternoon’s presentation highlighted the work of the group to date and emphasised the need for people to get involved with shaping future healthcare provision.

New changes to health services in the district

Changes to the health service provision and monitoring were the theme for this afternoon’s meeting. Health Watch is a new consumer champion for the public, patients, health and social care users, carers and their families. It will be monitoring service provision and giving feedback to commissioners and service providers on our behalf.  There will be ‘drop-in’ sessions in local libraries for people who wish to give feedback about their experiences of healthcare provision.
