We want patients and the public to get involved and to help us ensure that the services we plan and buy locally meet the needs of the people of Barking and Dagenham.
Or get involved with our patient engagement forum or join your patient participation group.
Barking and Dagenham CCG has an active patient engagement forum which meets every other month. This is the place where patients and the public can influence decisions about local healthcare, bring any issues, concerns, or good news stories, to the group. The forum also gives GPs and their supporting teams the opportunity to receive direct feedback about people’s experiences of local health services.
In recent months we have discussed the following topics and services and how we, as patients, can help shape and improve them:
If you would like to find out more about the Barking and Dagenham patient engagement forum, please contact Boba Rangelov, our Patient and Public Engagement Advisor via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 3182 2908.
A Patient Participation Group is a group of patients interested in health and healthcare issues, who want to get involved with, and support the running of, their own GP Practice. Contact your GP surgery for more information on how to join and take a look at our leaflet about PPGs and what they do.
On 12 October, 2016, the CCG hosted an appreciation event to recognise the work of the Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) and Patient Engagement Forum (PEF) in Barking and Dagenham.
CCG chair Dr Waseem Mohi, and chief operating officer Sharon Morrow, both spoke about the importance of patient and public engagement to the CCG and its work, while appreciation certificates were given out by Dr Mohi.
