Vale of York receives Green Star award for Public Engagement

NHS England has recognised the work of NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for involving patients and the public in its work with the top award of a ‘Green Start’ rating.

Phil Mettam, Accountable Officer for NHS Vale of York CCG, said: ‘We would like to thank everyone involved in helping us achieve this rating. It has been a great effort across the sector, built on the foundations of good partnership working.
