We understand that your time is precious, which is why we want to give you as many different opportunities to get involved in our work as possible.

From online surveys to focus group sessions, we hope we offer something that you feel you can contribute to.

If you're thinking about joining a focus group or patient and public involvement group, to help manage expectations we've developed some 'ground rules':

If you have been invited to attend a CCG group we will provide you with the appropriate expenses policy information.

Should you wish to become an advocate of the CCG or take a hands-on role in any of our consultations and engagement, relevant training will be offered to support you.

Find out more about our participation principles and statutory responsibilities to involve patients and the public.
