NHS services are funded through what’s known as Clinical Commissioning Groups. These bodies decide where the money goes across different aspects of healthcare and, as a result, they can also have a significant impact on the actual services that are delivered. Every CCG has a patient reference or similar group where local people can get involved and have their say about the kind of services they want to see.
In the document below, we have listed every area CCG in the UK in alphabetical order. Alongside them we have collated information on patient reference/advisory or similar groups with some brief instructions on how to access and join them. Feel free to download or share it with anyone who may want to get involved and help improve their local services.
