Making sure health services are as efficient as possible is on the agenda at a select committee meeting on Friday 29 September.
The meeting is at 1pm at County Hall in Chichester.
West Sussex Health and Adult Social Care Select Committee (HASC) will hear from the three clinical commissioning groups (CCG) in the county about how they are making sure that health services are provided most effectively to meet the needs of local people.
CCGs plan, buy and monitor healthcare in areas. There are three in West Sussex: NHS Coastal West Sussex CCG, NHS Crawley CCG and NHS Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG.
Together, and with partners across Sussex, they are currently looking at how services are commissioned to make sure care and support is aligned across the region.
The committee will also hear an update from South Central Ambulance service about its takeover of the Patient Transport Service contract in Sussex.
Chairman of the Committee Bryan Turner said: “Making sure patients receive the best care is vital and ensuring services are being run as effectively as possible is part of that. It is really important the committee is satisfied that commissioning of services is as effective as it can be.”
HASC has 20 members, made up of 12 county councillors, seven district and borough councillors and one local Healthwatch member (non-voting).
