Big Chat 6

This Big Chat brought people together to talk about the challenges faced by the local NHS and what we might do to address them to make services more efficient and effective.  

Around 60 guests took part in workshop style discussions with professionals from the CCG focusing on four areas of healthcare that attendees were invited to give feedback on. 

These sessions explored how the CCG might reduce the estimated yearly £2 million cost of wasted medicines in Sefton, use technology to enhance health services and make them more efficient, commission care that offers the best medical outcomes for patients and change ways of working in GP practices, so that patients can be seen by the right professional first time to help surgeries to better respond to the increasing demands on health services. 

We have put together a short report about the event, giving an overview of people's views and below you will find more information from Big Chat 6, including a short video, photos and the presentation from the session.
