From 1 April 2021, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes CCGs are planning to become one single NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in line with NHS England’s Long Term Plan.
This will have an impact on how they operate as commissioners, (commissioning is the process by which health and care services are planned, purchased and monitored) and how they work together in the future.
Over the next few months, they will be engaging with GP Members, their staff, local service providers, councils, other partners and patients to listen to all views before they submit their final application in September 2020.
In the meantime you have the opportunity to share your views in a questionnaire: it is now live and is open until Sunday 13 September.Click here to take the survey.
Please read the Public Engagement Document that accompanies the questionnaire. This explains what they are proposing, and why.
They really value your comments, so please let them know your views by completing the survey.
If you would like more information on the proposed changes, please email: email@example.com.
We’re thrilled to announce that Bosom Pals, our large and highly successful breast cancer support group, has won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service!
Led by President Jaff Newton, who is also Secretary of the MKCPP, many Bosom Pals members also work closely with the MKCPP to share best practice across all areas of cancer care in the city.
It’s said that winning this prestigious award is equivalent to being awarded an MBE. So please join us in sending Bosom Pals our sincerest and fondest congratulations.
At a recent Zoom meeting of the University of Buckingham’s Cancer and Pathology Society (associated with MKUH), medical students staged a Q and A discussion with two members of the MKCPP who shared their experiences of their own cancer journeys.
By kind permission of the Society and the two MKCPP members concerned, here now is the video of the discussion for you to share.
