The summer issue of Health Matters now available!

The summer 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 and aims to update local people about the work of NHS Bury CCG and how it aims to make a difference to healthcare locally.  It also explains how readers can get involved with 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.   

This edition includes: a feature on Dementia including a Q&A together with information on the Dementia Friends campaign; advice on enjoying the summer months whilst staying healthy; an update on I will if you will, a project which aims to encourage women and girls to get into sport; information about the launch of a new service to help with minor eye conditions; and the latest progress towards a new Integrated Diabetes Service for local patients.

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