Cannock Chase CCG Annual Report 2014-2015

Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) submitted its second Annual Report with final audited accounts to NHS England on Friday 29 May. The Annual Report covers the period from 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015.

As Clinical Commissioning Groups we are required to publish one single document which incorporates our Annual Reports and Accounts each year. The National Health Service Act of 2006 (as amended) requires CCGs to prepare these in accordance with directions issued by NHS England.

The Annual Report will be formally presented at our Annual General Meeting, which is taking place on Thursday 2 July 2015, from 6.30pm at the Aquarius Ballroom and Banqueting Suite in Hednesford.

Medicines Waste Campaign

Every year £1.5million worth of medicines are being wasted locally – money that could have paid for other treatments or services.

There is no such thing as a free prescription. Even if you don't pay for your prescriptions there is still a cost to the NHS.

Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group has launched a public awareness campaign to advise people of what they can do to help reduce medicines waste.

It is everyone's NHS, so let's use it wisely.

Choose well - Right Treatment, Right Place, Right Time

Do you know where to take your loved ones when they need medical help?

Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group is supporting a national campaign to ensure people know where to go for medical help when they need it.

Too many people are turning up at A&E because they simply do not know where else to go for treatment or what other services are available.

The Choose Well campaign, which is being promoted at GP Practices and community venues across the area, focuses on getting people the right treatment in the right place at the right time.

Find out where you can access medical help.
