Patient Panel & Patient Partners

The CCG sets up Patient Panels and recruits Patient Partners to work with us on important issues, to co-design new services and keep us focused on the things that are important for local people. Examples are end of life care services and share your care.

We would like to recruit people of all ages, gender, faith and ethnicity and all levels of ability including sensory and learning disabilities. It is also important to us that people are included from across East Berkshire. We always advertise new opportunities on this site.

You may be interested in giving lots of time, attending meetings and reading lots of documents. You may be someone who has only a little time to offer and would prefer to give feedback when specifically asked and in a more structured way. We anticipate there will be opportunities for all.

If you are interested in becoming a Patient partner please email eastberksccg.enquiries@nhs.net

We have a volunteer expenses policy which can be found here.
