Patient and public involvement in commissioning is about enabling people to voice their views, needs and wishes, and to contribute to plans, proposals and decisions about local services.

By involving and listening to people who use local services, our teams can better understand health needs and respond to what matters most to people.

Patients and the public can often identify innovative, effective and efficient ways of designing, delivering and joining up services and this involvement is a vital part of what is known as our commissioning cycle.

On this page we publish information about engagement and consultation opportunities, including those that are currently live, and where feedback has informed a decision, we will include the feedback report (what we heard from local people and patients), details of the decision and where the decision was made.

You can also access our patient and public participation annual report for 2018/19 which highlights examples of engagement activities that have taken place during the year.

If you should have any queries, or would like more information, please contact us.
