Assurance of our patient and public involvement
Our CCGs governance structures are established to support patient and public participation and evidence how their involvement influences the CCG’s decision making. They also ensure our patient and public involvement activities are monitored and assured.
Our Patient and Public Involvement Lay Member is a key member of our Governing Body, Quality and Patient Experience Committee (QPEC) and Patient Council and champions engagement and equalities at many levels of the organisation. The PPI Lay Member offers advice and challenge to the CCG from a patient perspective to influence commissioning decisions. Our engagement function is part of the CCG’s Quality Team and led by the Chief Nurse, which ensures that patients and the public are at the heart of CCG decision making.
Reports on our engagement and outcomes of this are reported to QPEC and can be found here: QPEC engagement reports
Updates from the PPI Lay Member and escalation of engagement feedback if required are reported into our Governing Body meetings, the papers for which can be found here: Governing Body meeting papers
