Changes to the NHS are set to be discussed at the Joint Western Arun Area Committee tonight (Wednesday November 21) at 7pm.

Experts from the Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will be speaking about how national changes in hospitals and GP surgeries will affect healthcare in the area.

Coastal West Sussex CCG will cover some of the southern part of Horsham district, with the northern part served by Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG.

The meeting, which takes place on Wednesday November 21, will also look at updates to the Youth Support and Development Service as well as the latest crime stats from Sussex Police.

George Blampied, chairman of the County Councillors on the Committee, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for nearby residents to ask questions about any issues in their community they are concerned about.

“The committee will also look at new applications for Community Initiative Funding, which offers grants to projects led by nearby organisations.”

The meeting starts at 7pm at the Rowlands Rank Centre, Aldwick Road, in Bognor Regis.
