Both Fareham and Gosport and South Eastern Hampshire have the following groups:
Locality Patient Groups
The Locality Patient Group has a representative from the majority of local Patient Participation Groups (PPGs), with one member elected as Chair. The Chair is also a member of the Community Engagement Committee. This allows information to flow between the practice Patient Participation Groups and the Board.
Community Engagement Committees
These committees have two key roles:
- Providing a two-way flow of information between the CCG and our communities
- Assuring the CCG on the public involvement and engagement the committees undertake
The committees are chaired by a CCG lay member with responsibility for patient and public involvement who has direct links to the Board. Members include local councillors and council officers, the voluntary sector, patient representatives, Hampshire Healthwatch and NHS provider organisations.
