Free healthy smoothies and Disney goodies at CCG health fair and annual meeting

Healthy smoothies are the order of the day when a local NHS group holds its annual general meeting (AGM) and health fair next month.

NHS South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the NHS organisation responsible for planning and purchasing the majority of health services on behalf of people in Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland, is holding its AGM and health fair on Wednesday 9 September 2015 at Redcar Leisure and Community Heart, Ridley Street, Redcar, TS10 1TD from 4.00pm-7.00pm.

The CCG team will be making free healthy smoothies from their Smoothie Bike, and youngsters will be able to pick up some free Change4Life Disney promotional materials.

Action For Blind People will be bringing along sight loss daily living aids and eye condition simulation spectacles for people to try, and a team working with guide dogs will be coming along.

There will be lots more health and wellbeing information available on the day, and the CCG will be working with staff at the leisure centre to highlight the benefits of exercise.

During the formal AGM, people will also have the opportunity to hear about the CCG’s achievements over the last financial year, and the CCG’s Annual Report and Accounts will be officially presented.  The AGM will also discuss future challenges in the NHS across Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland.

Dr Janet Walker, Chair of the CCG said: “I’m really looking forward to welcoming people to our AGM and health fair.  You can come along and enjoy a smoothie and find out more about the CCG and the work it does on your behalf to plan local health services.

“We will also present our Annual Report and Accounts, which outlines the work we have done in the last year, and find out about our future priorities.”
