What does HealthVoice talk about?

The agenda for HealthVoice is set by the people who attend. Discussions have ranged from national developments from NHS England, to being involved in deciding where healthcare budgets are spent in Eastern Cheshire. What matters to you in healthcare, matters to us as a CCG.

 What does HealthVoice do?

The group acts as a champion for patients, carers and members of the public by:-

  • Contributing to the development of the CCG
  • Establishing a constructive engagement programme based on openness and transparency
  • Discussing and confirming service improvement actions following the findings of local and national consultation and engagement activities
  • Informing respective commissioning leads on areas of concern to help decision making in the review of care pathways
  • Ensuring the CCG is compliant with legislation, adopts good practice and implements national policy on patient, carer and public engagement and experience, and challenges when there are indications of non-compliance
  • Contributing to the production of an annual report on the CCG's patient, carer and public engagement, consultation and experience for presentation to Governing Body.

HealthVoice is a forum for individuals and organisations to share their patient and carer experiences in order to identify improvements and aid the CCG in the planning and buying of healthcare.
