Patient engagement is embedded within our organisation and is aligned to the way in which Birmingham and Solihull CCG operates, in order to be efficient, and to facilitate genuine opportunities for patient participation.
In 2016, Birmingham CrossCity CCG, which is now Birmingham and Solihull CCG, recognised that it needed a change of approach, and commissioned OPM to review its public and patient engagement structures and propose ways they could be strengthened. You can find out more about this review here. Demonstrating the change of approach, the Governing Body approved the engagement review and redesign of how we engage with our patients, and this paper can be viewed here.
In order to help people attend and get involved in CCG meetings and projects, the CCG has a Patient expenses policy.
