We want you to help us to plan, develop and improve services by sharing your views and experiences. To get involved or find out more, please contact our Patient and Public Involvement team on 01422 307400.
You can choose how much time you give to getting involved. We may send you surveys from time to time, invite you to small focus groups with a few other people to discuss specific issues to talk to you over the telephone or at your local Patient Reference Group meeting. We are always looking at new ways to help people have their say about health services and we will work with you to find out the best method for you.
We organise a range of public events throughout the year. These are open to all and include the opportunity to find out more about the work of the CCG, meet staff, and have your say.
Details of our upcoming events can be found on our Meetings & Events page.
Governing body meetings
A number of our Governing Body Meetings are held in public. Come along and listen to the discussion and find out more about what we do. You can also submit questions in advance. More information on our Governing Body is available on our Governing Body page.
Patient reference groups (PRGs)
Patient Reference Groups have been set up for each local GP practice in Calderdale where you can contribute to the continuing improvement and development of your local GP practice.
To join, or for more information on your local Patient Reference Group, please contact your GP practice directly. Patient Reference Group members will also automatically become part of a Calderdale Health Forum.
Calderdale Health Forum
Calderdale Health Forum has been set up to collectively involve members of the CCG’s member practices’ patient representative groups in what’s happening in the CCG.
The Health Forum is a network that helps us gather the views of patient representative groups through surveys, focus groups and conversations. Information gathered is then used to improve health services around Calderdale, making them more accessible and user-friendly. We will also use the information to help make decisions about planning new services.
To get involved in the Calderdale Health Forum please contact your local GP practice for details on how you can join its Patient Reference Group.
Engagement and consultation
We run a number of engagement and consultation activities designed to include local people in the decision-making process and have their say about future services. You can see engagement opportunities here and consultations opportunities here.
Healthwatch provides a way for local people to communicate, challenge and shape the decisions or commissioners and service providers in health and social care. For more information visit the Healthwatch Calderdale website.
