Why is the report so important?
The report highlights our key engagement activities and those of our providers and clearly demonstrates our commitment, and our providers’ commitment, to patient and public engagement.
It provides assurance for our legal requirements which are:
- Section 242 of the Health and Social Care Act and Section 244 of the consolidated NHS Act 2006
- NHS Constitution 2009
- The Equality Act 2010
The report ensures we achieve the requirements of our Engagement and Experience Strategy for Local People in Calderdale – 2015-18.
