There are numerous ways that you can contribute to our work as well as wider conversations regarding local NHS matters.
GP practice participation groups
All GP practices should have their own practice participation group. If you’d like to join, then please contact the practice manager at your local surgery for more information.
We organise a series of public events each year which are open to all, you can find out more about these in the events section of our website.
Our Governing Body meetings are open to the public. You’re welcome to observe and there’ll be an opportunity to ask questions.
To find out about which consultations we are currently running, visit our Current Engagement and Consultation page.
Patient and Public Involvement Groups
Dependent on where you live, you can also get involved in one of our Patient and Public Involvement groups. These groups are positive ambassadors for the NHS and local services and assist us to engage with communities across the Tees Valley. Visit the Patient and Public Involvement page for more information.
NHS England involvement opportunities
The Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Partners Policy sets out how NHS England supports PPV partners to be involved in its work. PPV partners include patients, service users, carers, families and other members of the public who are involved in NHS England’s work in different ways. The policy sets out the support and governance arrangements in place to enable PPV partners to be effective in their roles.
You can contact us directly by phone or email.
