Primary Care Engagement Forum (PCEF)

Primary Care Engagement Forum

The PCEF supports the development of improving primary care, as well as wider health issues, through understanding grassroots practice level issues from a patient’s perspective.

Chaired by a CCG Independent Member, the PCEF provides a recognised forum, where patient representatives can represent the views and experiences of their PPG. It also provides a direct link into, and acts as a conduit between PPGs and the Primary Care Commissioning Committee, within the recognised CCG governance structure.

There is a Terms of Reference in place for the PCEF; this confirms the CCG’s commitment to offering PCEF members the opportunity to influence the agenda, and ensures that members are providing updates to their PPGs after the meetings.
