Patient engagement is an important element of the work we do and we have a legal duty, under Section 14Z2 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, to make sure that we engage patients and the public in our work.
We encourage patient representatives to be involved in our work and projects to provide input from a public and patient perspective in developing proposals for services.
Our Patient Reference Group consists of representatives from across our area. We use this group to seek patient representatives to be involved in our work. In addition, patients and the public are able to get in contact with our Communications and Engagement Team to express an interest in being involved.
If you are interested in being a patient rep please contact the Communications and Engagement Team on 01223 725400 or email us.
