Petitions

NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which the residents of Eastern Cheshire can let us know of their concerns. The CCG will treat something as a petition if it is identified as being a petition, or if it seems to us that it is intended to be a petition.

The CCG will treat as a petition any communication which is signed by or sent to us on behalf of a number of people. For practical purposes, the CCG sets the following requirements before considering a petition:
