​Residents welcomed to Merton CCG AGM and market stall event


Many thanks to Merton residents and all our voluntary sector partners who attended our AGM and market stall event last week.

The market stall event showcased information on a wide range of services and in Merton. This included information about the GP hubs in Mitcham and Wimbledon which offer appointments with GPs and nurses at evenings and weekends.

There was also a stall for residents to get more information about the development of the Wilson Health and Wellbeing Campus and a stall about the Experts Patients Programme which helps people understand how to manage their long-term conditions

Voluntary sector partners who attended included Age UK Merton who also had a stall.

At the AGM meeting a review of our achievements and challenges over the past year were detailed together with a look at our plans for the coming year.

Highlights included a presentation on Merton's social prescribing pilot which included a short film of patients talking about how they benefited from having a social prescriber at their GP practice.

You can watch the film in the AGM presentation slides which can be found here. Further information can be found in the Annual Report Summary.
