The CCG holds events which members of the public are invited to attend and participate in.

Below, you can find a list of past events.

Commissioning Reform Discussions

“The NHS Long Term plan outlined how the NHS will change in the future, including a fundamental shift in how CCGs will work and how future commissioning will be carried out.  As part of this, you may be aware of proposals to merge CCGs in East and West Sussex (not including Brighton and Hove CCG), in order to ensure the planning and buying of health services can be done in a more effective and joined up way with Local Authorities in future. This also supports the move towards “Integrated Care Systems” and “Population Health Commissioning, with greater focus on prevention and outcomes rather than episodes of sickness and illness.

We know that some people are unclear about these changes, and that there are lots of questions about new ways of working; we want to ensure you are provided with clear information and the opportunity to ask questions and give us your views.

We have planned a number of discussion sessions across Sussex, where you will hear about these changes from our Clinical and Commissioning Leads, ask questions and make suggestions for our aim of working more collaboratively with our partners.

The list below shows where we are holding these discussions, with the links to book on (so we know how many will be attending).

If you cannot attend, please do let us know if you would like someone to come to your organisation or group to talk through the changes.

We will be putting information on the CCG websites very soon, including a summary, frequently asked questions and a short animation.

If you have any questions, please contact us: HWCCG.engagement@nhs.net/BHCCG.participation@nhs.net

The Big Health and Care Conversation

The ‘Big Health and Care Conversation’, held on 9 December, gave patients, carers and members of the public the chance to meet our commissioners and clinical leaders to discuss priorities for health and care in the area, including prevention & social prescribing, mental health, primary care and urgent care.

Finance Drop-In session

The NHS is currently facing significant financial pressures and is required to make £50m of savings across the Central Sussex and East Surrey Commissioning Aliance This will be a significant challenge and will involve difficult decisions having to be made about some services that are not considered cost-effective.

As the local organisations responsible for buying (“commissioning”) services, the Alliance CCGs have made a commitment to being open, honest and transparent with our patients, public and stakeholders about the financial situation and the decisions that will be made to meet our financial requirements.

As part of this, we held drop-in sessions across the city to give members of the public the opportunity to come along and to ask any questions around finances or to discuss in more detail what it will mean for people of Brighton and Hove.
