It is recognised that local people give up their personal time to become involved in the CCG’s work; this contribution is very much valued. However, this can result in them incurring costs in order to take part and participate.
Therefore, the CCG is keen to support and facilitate people to participate by reimbursing their out-of- pocket expenses. This is mainly travel expenses, such as bus tickets, car mileage or parking, but could also be caring costs.
Our Patient expenses policy, which was developed in line with NHS England best practice, gives further information.
