Public and Patient Involvement Lay Members

Our Public and Patient Involvement Lay Members play an important role in assuring the CCG that we are meeting our statutory duties on involvement and are applying relevant approaches to involvement.

They meet regularly with the CCG team and sit on key Committees such as Quality and Constitutional Standards and Business Planning and Clinical Commissioning to ensure that business cases reflect sufficient invovement.  They also reach out into their local communities to establish networks that the CCG is not already linked into.  We have one Lay Member for Public and Patient Engagement in each locality, ensuring we maintain our local focus.
