A choice of who provides services is better for patients

Winter issue of Health Matters now available

The winter issue of our e-newsletter is now available to access online.

Health Matters is NHS Bury Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) quarterly public e-newsletter.  It updates local people about the work of the CCG and how the CCG aims to make a difference to healthcare locally.  Health Matters also explains how readers can get involved in the work of the CCG, to shape the way that services in Bury are planned and delivered. 

NHS Bury CCG is the commissioning organisation for Bury and its job is to plan and purchase a range of health services for local people.  

The winter edition of Health Matters includes: top tips about how you can prevent winter bugs, and what to do if you do become unwell; information for patients about the availability of GP telephone consultations, and from the New Year appointments in the evening and at the weekend; a reminder about the Healthy Minds service to keep your mind healthy; and details of new ways the CCG is engaging with you – including a new engagement tool that you can sign up to and a newly launched blog which is written by several clinicians providing the latest health information.

Dr Kiran Patel, Chair and Clinical Lead of NHS Bury CCG, said: "We are committed to ensuring that services are responsive, efficient and offer good value for money.  Health Matters is just one way that we are reaching out to our local communities to keep people informed of our work and to give them the opportunity to get involved and make a difference.

"We have recently launched a new online tool enabling people to tell us how they would like to get involved in our work, how much information they would like to receive and areas they are most interested in.  To express an interest in finding out more about our work all you need to do is visit www.bury.nhs.uk/getinvolved and complete an online form.”

Health Matters is available online and people can sign up to receive each edition by e-mail directly to their inbox.  Subscribe to Health Matters here.
