Health website will give patients a voice
A WEBSITE is being launched tomorrow by Halton’s new NHS organisation.
Halton Clinical Commissioning Group will be responsible for buying health services across Halton from April, 2013.
The CCG is already running the purse strings as they prepare to take over next year.
Simon Banks, newly appointed chief executive, said, ‘The new website is the next step in the process of us becoming an authorised health body.
“It will give patients a place to go to find out about us and give us a way to engage and communicate with our local people.”
The new website, www.haltonccg.nhs.uk will be a way for the group to communicate and engage with local people and allow them to be open and transparent. Patients, local people and other stakeholders will be able to log on to find out more about the group, any events that are planned, how to get involved with the group and much more.
