Question submitted to Redditch & Bromsgrove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Governing Body 23rd March 2017
Please can you confirm who the CCG has appointed as public and patient representatives, which panels, meetings, groups etc. they sit on and inform Healthwatch Worcestershire of their attendance at those forums over the past 12 months.
The CCG has an appointed Lay Member for Patient and Public Involvement and the Lay Member sits on a number of forums. We are able to provide Healthwatch Worcestershire further details of these forums in writing. In addition to the appointed Lay Member for Patient and Public Involvement, the CCG has a membership scheme for residents of Redditch and Bromsgrove and an established Patient Network. Level 3 Members of the ‘Now Have Your Say’ scheme are provided with a wide range of opportunities to get involved in addition to a monthly patient forum meeting.
