People can find out first-hand how health service decisions are made by attending an NHS commissioning group board meeting next week.

Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group is responsible for planning and purchasing local health services on behalf of people who live in Hertsmere.

The commissioning group holds several board meetings in public during the year and allows people ask questions about the services they it delivers.

The next meeting takes place at 1.30pm on Thursday, July 24 at The South Hill Centre in Hemel Hempstead.
