NHS Clinical Commissioners
Monday, 01 June 2015
The need for transformational change in the NHS is frequently discussed. So too is the need to involve the public in difficult decisions about that change. However, advice on how to successfully engage a range of public stakeholders has often been less forthcoming. This paper from NHS Clinical Commissioners is an attempt to redress that. Read on for top tips on how to get public engagement right. These are all drawn from conversations with those involved in three case study projects. Engaging the public in decisions about the health service is a difficult but important challenge. We hope this paper helps you to meet it.
