Join us in our Big Health and Care Conversation

NHS Crawley CCG  and NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG work in partnership with local health and care organisations to improve care for our population.     The Big Health and Care Conversation event is led by the CCGs working alongside the local NHS organisations, Healthwatch, patients, carers and the local community and voluntary sector.     You're invited to our first Big Health and Care Conversation events this summer. This gives you the chance to meet our commissioners and clinical leaders to discuss priorities for health and care in the area, including an opportunity to hear about and discuss the regional Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) and the unprecedented financial challenges facing our local health and care services. We look forward to you joining us at this event if you can.  If you can’t join us on this occasion there will be future opportunities to engage with us about developing health and social care for your area.
