Have your say
Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are responsible for planning and buying health services on behalf of local people.
Your feedback helps us to improve those services and the quality of care you receive. So we need to hear from local people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, and people with a range of experience of NHS services.
There are three things you can do to get involved and have your say:
Register with the Berkshire Health Network
By registering with the Berkshire Health Network (BHN), you’ll be the first to hear about opportunities to have your say. BHN members receive regular news and surveys based on their interests and invitations to upcoming meetings.
Get involved with the Patient Participation Group at your GP surgery
Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) are based at most GP surgeries and meet on a regular basis to discuss the services on offer and how improvements can be made. To find out more, get in touch with the practice manager at your GP surgery.
The Patient Panel liaises with the PPGs to ensure that local practices address the needs of their communities. Further information about the Patient Panel is available here.
