How to get involved

Your feedback helps us to ensure we are commissioning the right services for our local population.

There are a number of ways you can get involved in learning more and having your say about health services in Walsall…

Patient Voice Panel

The Patient Voice Panel is an exciting way for you to better understand the CCG and help to shape local healthcare services. There are also opportunities to share your experience of using local healthcare services. Membership is free and you can be involved as much or as little as you like. All we ask is that you have an interest in the NHS and a passion for making things better for Walsall. To find out more and to join e-mail walsallccg.ccgcomms@nhs.net.

Patient Participation Group

One way you can be involved in local health services is to join local Patient Participation Group (PPG). Most GP practices across Walsall have a PPG which is made up of patients and carers who have an interest in developing local health services. Ask at your GP practice how you can get involved in your PPG.

Community Focus Groups

When there is particular health subject where we would like to hear about your experiences or suggestions for improvement we will invite patients, carers and families to come along and take part in a discussion.
