It is important to us that the people of Northumberland have a say in healthcare planning and provision. This will help us develop a health service that has been specifically tailored to the needs of the local community.
Throughout the year we engage on a regular basis with the public, many community and voluntary sector organisations, local community groups and patient participation groups.
We also continually engage with our communities through our website, social media and our My NHS database. Members of the public are also encouraged to attend our Governing Body meetings.
NHS England has produced a helpful guide with information on how to get involved in primary care commissioning. Please click on the pdf to download the document.

This strategy sets out the CCG’s approach to effective communication and engagement with key stakeholders and audiences. It explores innovative methods of communications and engagement which will help to develop effective relationships which influence the CCG’s decision-making processes, improve services, and build public confidence in the local NHS.
