Have your say
Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are responsible for planning and buying health services on behalf of local people.
Your feedback helps us to improve those services and the quality of care you receive. So we need to hear from local people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, and people with a range of experience of NHS services.
Below are things you can do to get involved and have your say:
