Supporting you to get involved

Supporting you to get involved

We value the involvement of patients, the public and partners and provide a range of opportunities to help influence and improve health services across Hampshire, Southampton and the Isle of Wight. 

We are committed to meaningful engagement with the communities we serve and actively encourage you to get in involved and have your say.
 

We work with patients, carers, member GP practices, health and social care partners, voluntary sector organisations and others to ensure we commission the high quality services that meet the needs of local populations where they live.
 
How you can get involved

  • Surveys and consultations

  • Join your GP practice’s Patient Participation Group by contacting your practice
