Our CCG Volunteer programme gives local people a chance to take part and contribute as we work to engage and involve them in planning change and development to health and care services across Leeds
Volunteers can make a unique contribution to the relationship between the CCG and the people of Leeds, providing opportunities for us all to learn from the different perspectives, insight, and experience they can bring.
Our volunteer programme is constantly evolving as we go along, taking on-board feedback from volunteers and wider stakeholders, and constantly reviewing and revisiting our plans and processes to ensure they offer the best ongoing support and opportunities to our volunteers, to the CCG and to the citizens of Leeds.
Our volunteers help to ensure that the voice of patients, carers, and the public are taken into consideration when decisions are made that affect health services and patient care.
This isn’t about sharing personal opinions about health services in the city, but is instead, about thinking how changes and developments to services can affect people from a range of different communities and backgrounds in different ways, and working to highlight and minimise any negative impacts or results.
CCG Volunteers take turns at attending the CCG Patient Assurance Group to review and discuss our engagement plans and equality impact assessments, to ensure the patients’ voice has been considered in all our work. CCG volunteers also sit on a variety of project steering groups or work programmes to make sure that the voice of the public is heard and acted upon at every stage of the commissioning cycle.
