Virtual Patient Council

The Patient Council was established as part of the governance arrangements of the CCG and exists to provide assurance and scrutiny in relation to the CCG’s plans. Membership includes Patient Participation Group (PPG) representatives from Lincolnshire East CCG member practices, who attend to represent the views of patients and the public.

The purpose of the patient council is to ensure the population served by the CCG have a voice in the planning and delivery of health services. 


To better understand the way this is intended to work please see the presentation made during the September 2016 meeting.

Representing Patient Views

As you will see from the above flow diagram, PPG representatives who sit on the Virtual Patient Council gather feedback, opinions and views from local patients and healthcare service users and present this back to the council meetings on behalf of patients registered at the CCG's 30 member practices. Using this feedback form will assist representatives to record the information throughout the process and encourage two way communication between the CCG and patients.


Through this Virtual Patient Council page, the CCG welcomes feedback on the topics discussed at the Patient Council meetings and if you have any comments or questions please contact the Engagement team by telephone 01522 515305 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
