We want to involve our patients and our wider population in the decisions that we need to make about the services we commission for the people of Hambleton, Richmondshire and the surrounding area.
‘Formal consultation’ describes the statutory requirement of NHS bodies to consult with patients, the public and stakeholders when considering a proposal for a substantial development of or change to a health service. This is outlined in regulation 23 of the Local Authority (Public Health, Health and Wellbeing Boards and Health Scrutiny) Regulations 2013.
Our process for undertaking any formal consultation includes an Equality Impact Assessment to support the consultation process, as well as a consultation checklist to ensure all consultations are consistent.
- NHS England consultation on proposed changes to some over the counter prescription medications - closes 14 March 2018
- Department of Health consultation on Blue Badge scheme: consultation on eligibility - closes 18 March 2018
Engagement is a key element needed to help us improve all aspects of health care, including patient experience and health outcomes.
Engagement is the continuing and on-going process of developing relationships and partnerships so that the voice of local people and partners are heard and that our plans are shared at the earliest possible stages.
It also describes activity that happens early on in an involvement process, including holding extensive discussions with a wide range of people to develop a robust case for change.
This can also be used in a pre-consultation stage before any formal consultation or prior to making a commissioning decision which does not require formal consultation.
