In response to the challenges facing the NHS and to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission, there will be changes to arrangements for meetings to which members of the public are routinely invited by NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk, NHS West Suffolk and NHS North East Essex CCGs.

The public will not be able to attend the next scheduled meetings:

Instead, members of the public are invited to submit questions by email relating to agenda items for each of these meetings.

Each agenda and the meeting papers will be published on the relevant CCG's website as usual and the answers to any questions submitted by the public will be published there after the meeting.

Additionally, the next meeting of the NHS West Suffolk CCG’s Community Engagement Group (April 30) and NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG’s Community Engagement Partnership (April 6) have been cancelled.

Dr Ed Garratt, chief executive of the three CCGs, said: “It is with regret that we have decided to preclude members of the public from attending some meetings and cancelling others.

“This is an unprecedented time for the NHS both locally and nationally and we hope people will understand the need to do all we can to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission.

“Public input to our meetings is very important and people will still have the opportunity to submit questions by email.”

Questions relating to NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk and NHS West Suffolk CCGs should be emailed to comms@suffolk.nhs.uk and neeccg.comms@nhs.net for NHS North East Essex CCGs.
