Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is an NHS organisation, led by local GPs, which plans and buys health services for Haringey residents.
To get the best health services for residents Haringey CCG needs to hear from local people.
the Council, Public Health, the NHS and other key partners conduct research, run surveys and speak with users to assess the health needs of Haringey’s residents. This is called a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and it provides an indication of what health services may be required in future.
But it doesn’t stop there…
The next important stage is called commissioning. This is when we use the information from the JSNA to plan and buy the health services that people use.
How we do this
Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group, led by local GPs, plans and buys health services for Haringey residents. We want to make sure that local people can help shape the types and quality of health services that the CCG commissions.
Give some of your time
Join your GP practice’s patient participation group (PPG)
A PPG is a group of patients who are interested in health and healthcare issues, and who want to get involved with and support the running of their local GP practice.
Come along to public meetings and listening events
We hold public meetings and listening events throughout the year where people can come along and tell us what they think about local services.
Be involved in the development of health services
When we are thinking about the services that we have commissioned and how they are working, we want to involve local people with experience of those services and people who are ‘expert patients’.
Patient representatives on CCG committees
Following a successful recruitment and training process, we have appointed patient representatives to join some of the CCG’s decision making committees.
