Patient and public voice in governance

So that we hear the voices of patients and the public all levels, and that our commissioning decisions are informed by listening to those who use and care about services, we have embedded patient and public representatives in several of our governance structures.

Where possible, several patient and public representatives take part to enable diverse perspectives.

Involvement in governance includes: 

  • the appointment of lay members to our governing body,
  • representatives involved in clinical board meetings,
  • representatives involved in our communications, engagement and equalities reference group,
  • representatives involved in the network steering groups and advisory groups covering areas of strategic priorities such as improving patient experience, diabetes, heart disease; and,
  • recruitment of permanent staff to the CCG.
