NHS Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are committed to putting the voice of patients and the public at the heart of all its decision-making and in the evaluation of current health services - listening to patients and acting on that feedback is part of our vision and one of our underlying core principles.
The involvement of patients and the public plays an important part in building and shaping health care services in Tameside and Glossop to ensure they meet the needs of the local people. As GPs we listen to our patients everyday and hear about your experiences of the services in our area.
We will use this face-to-face opportunity to the maximum when developing and commissioning services, but we also need to organise different ways to tell us what you think. It is our intention to consult with patients on a regular basis - both formally and informally.
We use a variety of tools to engage with the local people we serve, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to take part including Patient Participation Groups, surveys and questionnaires, and face-to-face meetings.
