CCG "listens"

I visited Finchley Memorial Hospital in the morning to hand over the petition on cuts. I was horrified to learn that the Clinical Commissioning Group set out only 6 public chairs, even though they knew in advance there was a petition being delivered. They didn't let members of the public speak either, which is simply outrageous.

This kind of behaviour is unacceptable, you'd think the CCG were run by Barnet Council! It's typical to bill an organisation as "listening" then bar members of the public from talking.
