Join one of our patient and public engagement groups
Our patient and public engagement groups bring together members of the public, carers, representatives from voluntary organisations and our local Healthwatch groups, to hold the CCG to account for how it involves local people in the design and commissioning of local health services.
- In Bath and North East Somerset, the Your Health, Your Voice group meets every two months.
- In Swindon, the Patient and Public Engagement Forum meet once every three months.
The groups are chaired by our Lay Member for Patient and Public Involvement and act as a critical friend to the CCG, discussing proposed service changes with commissioners from planning through to delivery.
Members are also encouraged to inform and support the CCG’s engagement with the wider public by advising us on different approaches and groups we should consult with.
