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 have published information about engagement and consultation opportunities, future engagement opportunities will be promoted on the One Community Bury platform

The difference involvement makes

We want to make sure that we keep you informed and updated on how your feedback has informed our decision making and made a difference.  We will always publish information about the feedback we have heard, for example, as part of a consultation, and how this has informed a decision.  We will also provide links to key documents including a collation of the feedback we receive following a consultation, any formal papers or meetings where this feedback is considered and any links to press releases following a decision.

Please take the opportunity to get involved and share your views, and if you provide us with your contact details and would like us to let you know the outcome of any consultation process directly, this can be arranged.

If you sign up to our Health Matters e-newsletter, we will also include the outcome of our decisions in future issues, along with sharing information through the local press and media and via our social media platforms such as Twitter.

Future engagement opportunities will be promoted on the One Community Bury platform
