Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commisioning Group

Patient, public and carer engagement forum meetings

The forum is somewhere where we can talk with our patients, carers, and the public and give our local communities the opportunity to share their opinions with decision-makers from the CCG, allowing them to contribute directly to decisions affecting healthcare provision.

Our next forum meeting will be held on Monday 17 December, 10am – 1pm, Gateshead Civic Centre.

Papers for the meeting can be found here

  • Provide an open two way communication channel between patients, public and carers and the CCG.
  • Work positively across Newcastle and Gateshead within an agreed working together compact.
  • Ensure the issues/themes identified by patients, public and carers are brought to the attention of the Involvement Forum and the CCG
  • Support and encourage the participation and engagement of patients, public and carers in the planning, design and improvement commissioning of services
  • Act as a key local forum to raise awareness of CCG activity, service development and commissioning plans.
