You can also get involved in a number of other ways including:

Supporting you to get involved

If you need support to get involved please contact us to discuss how we can help.  We can provide interpreters, translation of information or alternative formats and other support to access our events.  Through our Reward and Recognition Policy (see below) we are able to support people to be involved in specific projects and events.

Reward and Recognition

To support patients, carers and the wider public who are involved in helping us shape the development of health services, the CCG has developed a more formal Reward and Recognition Policy based on NHS England good practice guidance and policies from our neighbouring CCG areas. Our Policy has now been approved, thank you to those that provided feedback.

Accessible Information Standard

What is the Accessible Information Standard?

The aim of the Accessible Information Standard is to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss get information that they can access and understand, and any communication support that they need.

The Accessible Information Standard tells organisations how they should make sure that patients and service users, and their carers and parents, can access and understand the information they are given. This includes making sure that people get information in different formats if they need it, for example in large print, braille, easy read or via email. The Accessible Information Standard also tells organisations how they should make sure that people get any support with communication that they need, for example support from a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, deafblind manual interpreter or an advocate.

How does the CCG meet these requirements?

The CCG works with local NHS providers to ensure they meet the requirements of the Standard. As a GP member-led organisation, we provide an Interpretation and Translation service for all of our practices to ensure that people, for whom English is not their first language, are fully involved in decisions about their care.  We aim to ensure that all of the information produced by the CCG is accessible and available in alternative formats, e.g. our website meets recognised good practice; we respond to requests for information in large print.
