Get involved

Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is committed to being accountable to our patients and public and placing them at the heart of everything we do.

We ensure they can have their say about Herefordshire’s health services. We also make sure that their opinions are listened to by the CCG and that we act on concerns. How?

We want to make this as simple as possible. That is why we have developed a number of ways that people can get involved.

Governing Body Meetings

We hold our governing body meetings in public on a bi-monthly basis. 

To enable patients and the public to understand what we do in a transparent way, we hold our governing body meetings in public. This means anyone can attend on the day. Members of the public can submit written questions to the CCG, by email or letter, no later than 48hours in advance of the meeting, We can’t always answer all questions during the session, but we will provide you with a written response to your questions. If you would like to submit a question to the Governing Body please click here

Patient Participation Groups

Most Herefordshire GP practices now have Patient Participation Groups (PPG). This allows all patients registered with that practice to have a say on how it is run. We also meet with PPG members on an annual basis to hear their views and ideas about current services and how we can improve healthcare services in the future. To find out more visit our  Patient Participation Groups (PPG) page or ask about how to join next time you visit your GP surgery.

CCG Membership Scheme

We also have a membership scheme. Anyone registered with a GP in Herefordshire can become a member and you can register online. By signing up you will recieve our monthly CCG public newsletter.

Patient Experience Survey

The purpose of this survey is to capture real time patient experience stories. We will use the information that you give us to shape and improve the care we commission in Herefordshire. For more information please see our Patient Experience Survey page.

Listening exercises and engagement

We regularily conduct listening exercises such as surveys, PPG meetings, public meetings and more formal engagement exercises to ensure that our plans and decisions take into account the views and health service needs of the residents of Herefordshire.

Patient in control

The NHS in your area is working with patients and family carers in identifying, what would help them to manage their own care more effectively.

We’d like to get as many views as possible, to get a real sense of what’s important to patients and carers, so we’re starting with this questionnaire to build a picture of what’s important to people.

Please give us as much or as little feedback as you feel able to give - your views count! It should take around 10 minutes to complete the survey.
