Get involved

Our job is to ensure the services we plan and buy locally meet the needs of the people of Barking and Dagenham. To do this our decisions are informed by engagement with the local public, our patients and partners. You can get involved in a variety of ways:

  • Get involved with Barking and Dagenham's Patient Engagement Forum or your local GP’s Patient Participation Group
  • Ask a question at our Governing Body meetings
  • Respond to a consultation or an engagement exercise about major changes to local healthcare services
  • Read about how patients and the public have been involved in service planning and design in our Annual Report and on Our Work pages
  • Join the online East London Citizens' Panel
  • Get in touch with your local Healthwatch organisation here.

We are committed to continuously improving our methods for engaging with local residents and stakeholders. You can read our current engagement strategy, which was co-designed with our patients, carers, members of the public and representatives from community and voluntary groups.
