People are being invited to the last annual general meeting  of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

On September 15, the CCG will host its final AGM before incoming legislation creates new Integrated Care Boards to oversee services from April 2022.

Many of the CCG’s functions will transfer to the new body, and recent progress to tackle inequalities and better integrate care will be accelerated by the shift.

The meeting will take place between 6 – 7:30pm and anyone can register by visiting the event page, and will then be sent details to join the meeting. People must register by 5pm on September 14.

Anyone who would like to submit a question to be answered at the meeting, or would like more information about how the event will run, can email bnssg.communications@nhs.net

Health leaders are encouraging local residents to attend the event to learn more about recent achievements including the vaccination roll-out, as well as how the CCG’s wider legacy of work paves the way for the future.

Dr Jonathan Hayes, local GP and clinical chair of the CCG, said: “We are pleased to invite local people to our AGM on 15 September.
