How you can get involved

Listening to you

We want to ensure that the way we engage with residents and patients on the Island and seek your views is meaningful, easy to follow and gives you every opportunity to get involved or have your say. By working with our communities, patients and carers we can make sure that we commission high quality, value for money health services for local people, based on patient experience and local feedback.    

You can get involved by:

  • Joining the Patient Participation Group at your GP Practice
  • Telling us your ideas and comments using our online form 
  • Telling us what you think of our website
  • Attending our Partnership Board meetings
  • Or you can stay informed, including finding out details of engagement opportunities, by following us on Twitter @IOWCCG

Using your feedback

We use your feedback to change how we do things. For examples of what we have done visit our You Said, We Did page

Seeking your views

We want you to get involved and influence your local health services.  As a CCG, putting the public, patients and carers at the centre of our plans and getting your input is very important.

When seeking your views our aim is to ensure that our engagement work is:

PROFESSIONAL We will be open and honest when communicating with our communities, partners, patients and staff,
MEANINGFUL What we communicate will be simple to follow and will enable you to voice your views, needs and wishes and contribute to plans, proposals and decisions about services
INVOLVING We will seek to provide opportunities for member practices, the wider clinical community, our Island residents and communities, our partners and staff to be involved in the engagement work that we undertake.
INCLUSIVE Our aim is to ensure that we are inclusive and that we appropriately seek views from all sections of our community
ACCOUNTABLE We will demonstrate how the feedback we have received has contributed to the decisions that we make.

When major plans are being considered in the way services are being delivered we want to hear what you have to say so that your views are integral in helping us make those decisions.

We will put information here about consultations and engagement we are carrying out.
