Supporting our staff to involve you

Our staff have a range of tools and support available to them to ensure they involve you in their work, particularly when they are developing or planning changes to the services we commission. Our framework for involvement helps all of us in the CCG to do this, and we get involved in local and national training opportunities that also support us in best practice approaches to public engagement and consultation.
