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.

Come along to the meeting chaired by Chris Piercy – Executive Director of Nursing, Patient Safety and Quality for Newcastle CCG, with the theme of:
