We want to encourage you to join our patient meetings, to respond to requests for feedback, and to actively work with us so that we are fully informed and equipped to commission the right services for you.
Our area has a strong public engagement focus, with dedicated personnel working on the ground, facilitating public meetings, forums and open sessions that enable you to actively work with us to represent the population in your local area.
Your opportunity to make a difference! - Many of our GP Member Practices have a Patient Participation Group (PPG). These are run by each GP practice with the aim of improving the patient experience. This is done by talking to you and sharing ideas to find solutions in response to issues and develop new ways of working. Contact your practice to find out how you can join your PPG.
Patients’ Network Meetings - These networks are an open forum of local residents, patients and community groups with an interest in health. It is a place where you can learn more about how we manage resources on behalf of our population. These networks are organised by our Engagement Team (details provided below). Representatives from each of the PPG groups from local GP practices are actively involved in the Patient networks.
Patient Summits - Our Summits have been established within our LCGs and have been well attended sessions, giving clinicians in localities access to a wider network of patients, their carers and organisations who advocate on their behalf.
