In December 2019, local BAME community members came together with the local NHS, including the CCG, and the local police to have conversations exploring how the local NHS engages and involves with local BAME community groups. The key themes from the conversations were captured in a graphic representation drawn by a member of the CCG Engagement Team.

In February 2020 we all came back together to update on progress. Particular highlights were the plans by Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust (community and mental health services) to advertise regularly on the local community radio station GlosFM and the CCG Information Bus booked to attend the JamDay celebrations.

At the event, community representatives raised questions and concerns about the new national law regarding changes to organ donation – the CCG looked into the concerns and was able to provide the following information the next day.
