April is bowel cancer awareness month, and a special opportunity to raise awareness of bowel cancer.
Currently our GP practices work in two well established localities (east and west) and these will shortly be complemented by two health hubs which will provide 7 day access to primary care across Merton.
During Nutrition and Hydration Week (March 13-19) patients and healthcare professionals in Merton are asked to support the campaign to reduce malnutrition and dehydration across their localities.
Prostate UK and Target Ovarian Cancer UK are leading the charge in tackling these insidious diseases, with a focus on early detection and treatment during entire month of March.
James Blythe has been appointed as Managing Director for the Merton and Wandsworth Local Delivery Unit. He is currently Director of Commissioning and Strategy at Surrey Downs CCG.
We are a membership organisation made up of 24 member practices covering the borough of Merton.
Patients are at the heart of everything we do here at Merton CCG and we want people to help set the health priorities for the borough.
Agenda and papers for the meeting are posted online at least three days in advance unless there are exceptional circumstances.
