Smart guides to public and patient involvement in your local NHS (i.e. Healthwatch, CCGs etc)

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chair of INVOLVE - the UK's national advisory group on public involvement - and NIHR National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research. I was CEO at the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) from 2006 until 2011. My full profile can be found on the 'Biography' page. The views on here are all personal ones unless otherwise stated. I hope you enjoy some of the things I write and/or find a useful link or two along the way.

Here are four exceptionally useful guides to ensuring good public and patient involvement and engagement in the new local NHS structures such as Healthwatch, CCGs etc.

Get smart about engagement series introduction

Engagement for commissioning success

Working with lay members and patient representatives

Working with LINks and local HealthWatch

My sense is that CCGs are taking very different approaches to this agenda – which has both strengths as well as weaknesses – but these might help to ensure some consistency as regards core values and principles. Spread far and wide please.

We now need one for research!  Or, at the very least, for the next versions of these to address research.
