The organisations responsible for commissioning most healthcare services in Devon are broadcasting their annual general meeting live on social media for the first time.
Devon’s two clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are holding their joint AGM at Exeter Racecourse from 6.30pm on 27 September 2018 and this year, as well as being welcome to attend in person, local people can tune in wherever they are via Facebook.
It is the first time the CCGs have streamed the Annual General Meeting live and the broadcast makes it easier for people to join the meeting without the need to travel. Viewers will also be able to ask questions via Facebook and email as the meeting happens.
Dr Paul Johnson (right), Chair of South Devon and Torbay CCG, said: “The meeting will showcase exciting digital innovations across Devon and the differences they are already making to patients, as well as a review of the annual report and accounts for 2017/18, highlights from the last year and a look ahead to the future.”
Dr Tim Burke (left), Chair of Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG said, “As we make great strides with digital innovations in health and care across Devon, we are delighted that we will be holding our first joint AGM between the two CCGs, not only as a traditional event held in public, but also live via Facebook.”
