STRUCTURE: A new website has been launched by the West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group for the public to access information about the new organisation.
The CCG hopes the website will allow the public to get involved in local healthcare decisions and find information on health services such as GPs, pharmacies and hospitals.
The site provides links to local lifestyle services such as Change4life, the NHS stop smoking service and psychological therapies.
People can also get a glimpse of West Leicestershire CCG board members, board papers and minutes from the CCG meetings are available to access online.
The West Leicestershire CCG is responsible for 366,000 and a commissioning budget of £362 million. It represents 50 GP practices and covers Hinckley & Bosworth, North Charnwood, North West Leicestershire and South Charnwood.
Dr Nick Pulman chair said: “Patients and the public will be able to access information regarding our health priorities for the next three years and CCG values as well as ways they can get involved with participation groups and have their say on important decisions which will help to shape the future of health services in West Leicestershire.
