Our 'Chat' events

Big Chat 9

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

For the third year running we combined our Big Chat event with our public Annual General Meeting (AGM), which gave us the opportunity to tell you about our performance and achievements during 2016-2017, as well as learning your views and opinions on a variety of topics important to us.


Big Chat 8

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

This summer’s Big Chat was a chance for us to feedback in a ‘you said we did’ style session about a number of schemes and initiatives we discussed with residents at previous events. In addition, we asked people for ideas and opinions on how we can balance the books and manage our finances in this challenging time for all NHS organisations.

This Big Chat brought people together to talk about the challenges faced by the local NHS and what we might do to address them to make services more efficient and effective.


Big Chat 5

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

We combined this Big Chat with our annual review event on Tuesday 15 September 2015. It was a chance for people to hear about our performance and achievements during 2014-2015, as well as giving their views about some of our key areas of work in the year ahead - particularly focusing on community services.


Big Chat 4

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Called 'strategy into action', this event focused on how we used people's views and experiences from previous Big Chats, Mini Chats and other public engagement activities to finalise our 5 year strategy for improving services. Held on 19 November 2014, it was a chance to talk more with people about how we intend to achieve our vision for better, more joined up care, which is provided as close to people's homes as possible. During workshop sessions, we asked attendees what they thought about this 'locality' model of care and how it might work for them.


Mini Chats

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

These are more focused events that give people the chance to hear about our emerging health and transformational programmes and give their ideas about how they could be further shaped.


Big Chat 3

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

We joined forces with Sefton Health and Wellbeing Board for Big Chat 3 to talk about the work we do together towards improving health and wellbeing in the borough. It was also a chance for people to hear how their views from previous Big Chats had been used to help develop our joint Sefton Health and Wellbeing Strategy - the overarching, borough wide plan that sets out the shared priorities of partners involved in health and social care - as well as how they were beginning to inform our CCG 5 year strategy.


Big Chat 2

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

This was our first Big Chat after becoming a statutory body on 1 April 2013. The event focused on unplanned, or urgent health services. The event took place on 24 July 2013, as we were beginning to design our 5 year strategy for improving health and wellbeing. The views and comments we gained from Big Chat 2 contributed to how we took this work further.


Big Chat 1

Monday, June 25, 2012

We held our inaugural Big Chat in summer 2012, as we were preparing to become a statutory organisation. It was a chance for people to find out more about us, as their new commissioner of local health services, as well as the wider changes to their local NHS due to the new Health and Social Care Act. Over 100 people came along and we worked with Sefton Council and the predecessor of Healthwatch Sefton, Sefton LINk, to talk about the greater role they would also soon be playing in working for better health and health services.
