If you are a member of a GP practice patient participation group (PPG) you can also help to influence the healthcare decisions of the clinical commissioning group.
Practice patient participation groups can send representatives to take part in the Bedford Locality Patient Group. The group provides the opportunity for you to become involved in shaping healthcare across the Bedford area. This group meets quarterly and is currently chaired by an NHS manager. However, we are keen for one of our patient representatives to lead this group.
We are also looking for patient representatives to join the Bedfordshire CCG Public Engagement Forum.
