​Big Ideas Generator

On Tuesday 11 July 2017, Croydon CCG held a discussion session to help the CCG to get the best value out of the money available to spend on local NHS services.

If we are to meet the growing demand for healthcare from our expanding population and the financial challenges we face then we will need to use our money more wisely.  We need to help people to be as healthy and independent as they can be, to secure and prioritise the best value care for them when they really need it. 

We invited the public to work with us to help find solutions to achieve the best possible services for Croydon, led by the views of local people.

The forum took place in the Community Space at Bernard Weatherill House, 8 Mint Walk, Croydon CR0 1EA, from 6.30 to 8.30 pm.

We would like to thank everyone who came and shared their ideas.  If you were unable to attend and feel you have a great idea, please read the supporting materials below and email getinvolved@croydonccg.nhs.uk.  

Materials used on the night are below:

The long list of over 700 ideas collected on the night is available here.  Ideas were given around what we can stop or start doing and what we can do more or less of.  We also divided ideas into what the CCG can do, versus what we need to escalate to a regional level and what is a statutory duty (what the CCG has to do or cannot do e.g. we cannot charge for missed GP appointments).

The next session will be held on Tuesday 19 September, at Braithwaite Hall.
