Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group

Getting Involved

NHS Wyre Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is committed to listen. We strive to put the views of local people at the heart of all of our decision making.

As a Wyre Forest patient, carer, resident, volunteer or employee, your views of the healthcare services that we commission on your behalf, is essential. By giving your opinions on what we are getting right, where we need to improve and how we can make positive changes, we able plan, develop and monitor healthcare services more effectively.

You can be involved in different ways, these include on a personal level - making more decisions about how your own health needs are met. You can be involved locally in helping to shape the services provided in your area or you can be involved strategically deciding what services are needed and who should provide them and how.

Ways to be involved:

Patient Participation Groups (PPG)

More information about Patients Participation Groups.

Public Governing Body Meetings

We aim to ensure NHS Wyre Forest CCG is managed in an open and accessible way, which allows local people to question and scrutinise what the CCG does and why it does it. Our Governing Body meetings are held in public and members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend so they can.
