The topics discussed will be led by those attending.*

Come along with information, notices or updates you’d like to share, topics you’d like discussed, or just come along to listen and have the opportunity to contribute to the discussion.

*Topics for discussion
We are inviting people to suggest topics for discussion to kick off the meeting. Please add a comment on this post to indicate a topic of interest. There will still be plenty of opportunities to raise a topic for discussion or highlight a notice on the night.

Councillors, council officers and the Croydon Met Police are invited to our meetings.

CCG header

Improving the Health and Independence of Older People in Croydon

Update on Outcomes Based Commissioning (OBC) Programme Event

NHS Croydon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Croydon Council are working together to deliver a new approach to commissioning services for people over 65, known as Outcomes Based Commissioning (OBC) – stating that they are putting what matters most to older people and their families at the heart of everything they do.

Public involvement has been taking place over the Summer and the CCG state that views and feedback have been vital in the development of the service.

But it does not stop there.

Your feedback is still crucial to ensure the patient is at the centre of the services provided.

Croydon CCG would like to invite you to an event to:

• Hear the progress made so far on the development of the service

• Give your views on what is important to deliver the service

• Share your experiences and ensure the patient voice is heard

  • ensure the fair runs smoothly by checking stalls and stallholders 11.30- 5pm
  • ensure the stage performers know where to go and what to do 11.30 – 5
  • assist with visitors by directing, answering questions noon – 5
