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 applicable to 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 have heard through various channels that some people are confused about the changes and we also know there are a lot of questions about new ways of working; we want to ensure that you are provided with clear information and an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. We have arranged a number of discussion groups across Sussex, where people can hear about the changes from our Clinical and Commissioning leads, ask questions and make suggestions for our aim of more collaborative working with our partners. The list below shows where the discussions will be hold – please book on as appropriate (we use this to get an idea of how many people are attending). If you are unable to attend, please let us know if you would like someone to come to your group or organisation to talk to you about these changes. We will be putting more information on our CCG websites very soon, including frequently asked questions, summary and a short animation. If you have any questions please do contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
