We in an area of Dorset have been told by the CCG that there will no longer be funding for the Health and Wellbeing board meetings. Is this now country wide so save money or is it in this area only please?The W&WB network is vital for members of the public who are after all, patients themselves. to learn what is happening within the NHS and how to be involved in the decision making in the area. This will now be denied us, in this very deprived area, What can we do about this as we do not have many PPG groups in areas either as the GPs are not keen to engage. Your comments/advice would be much appreciated please.
