Patient leaders gave their thumbs up to the Involvement programme at a local event, organised by NHSE Shropshire and Staffordshire Area Team, recently.
Commissioning Support Unit (CSU) Field Force
There are four months left of the National CSU Field Force pilot projects. All the teams are coming together and meeting up more regularly with NHS England to share learnings and ideas from the programmes, and to plot a way forward in terms of sustainability post March 2015.
Involvement has launched a survey designed to help understand the role and structure of Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) across CCGs in the Midlands and East.
Designed to be completed by a PPG chair or practice staff at GP surgeries, its aim is to provide information to help signpost patients to these groups and get more people involved in shaping better healthcare together.
