How to get involved

We are passionate about involving the public, patients, clinicians, stakeholders and service users in every step of defining how to meet health needs in Lincolnshire East CCG.

There are lots of ways you can get involved in the decisions that shape the health services provided in your area:

LECCG Continuous Listening Model
The Continuous Listening Model clearly demonstrates the robust governance and assurance processes in place to ensure the CCG are able to listen to the views, opinions and experiences of our patients, public and stakeholders.

The CCG’s Communications, Engagement and Equality and Diversity team meet monthly to review its involvement activity, including how effective it has been and taking action in response to what it has learnt.

Video Transcript

Tracy Pilcher “Getting involved in your CCG”

“Good morning, my name is Tracy Pilcher, and I’m the Chief Nurse for Lincolnshire East Clinical Commissioning Group. What I want to talk to you about this morning is how we’d like members of patients and the public to get involved with us as an organisation, and I want to introduce to you our viewpoint panel and our readers panel.

The viewpoint panel acts as the voice of patients, so where we have a specific service that we are looking to commission differently, or if we are looking to commission new services, what we’d like to do is come out to members of the public through the viewpoint panel and ask for their point of view, and ask them to respond to things such questionnaires or surveys about what difference they think those services will make.

As a reader panel, it’s about providing feedback on information that we are providing as a CCG or developing, such as this information leaflet here which is about how to get involved about local health matters, and what we want we want readers to do is look at the content of the leaflet, look at whether they think it makes sense, whether it’s structured properly, and if it is inviting for them to read.

It’s important that when we are producing information for patients and the public, that it is easy to read and it’s understandable. We really do appreciate, and value the role of patients and the public, and getting involved with us a commissioning organisation; it is essential to us that we do involve patients and the public, and hear the voice of the patient when we are commissioning services, so if you would like to get involved, you can find out more details on the website, and also the contact details for each of us within the CCG. Thank you.”
