Folder Public Consultations & Engagement
We want to involve you - our patients and the local population - in the decisions we need to make about developing and commissioning (buying) the right healthcare.
One of the ways we do this is through ongoing and planned engagement. This is when the CCG will actively seek to involve patients and the public in discussions about changes to services and what is needed for future care.
We also, when looking at substantial changes to local NHS services, will carry out formal public consultation to gather views and opinions on proposals for change and will report on the outcomes of feedback during consultation before making decisions around change.
- The five clinical commissioning groups in mid and south Essex are currently running a public consultation on outline plans for the future of health and care services. For more information click here.
- NHS England is currently runnning a public consultation on prescriptions for some ‘over the counter’ products such as dandruff shampoo and drops for tired eyes, freeing-up up to £136 million to expand other treatments for major conditions such as cancer and mental health problems.

We are currently have no formal public engagement programmes running.
