NHS City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group

In the Community

Community engagement provides an opportunity for local people and stakeholders to talk to us about the services they receive or the issues that affect them. This will help us to understand, plan for, and commission, the best healthcare services to meet people's needs. We want:

  • to be responsive and identify ways in which you can get involved and how best to support you in this.
  • to find ways of reaching out to as many people in the community, especially to those communities who are often underrepresented, to get a wide range of views.
  • to be informed so that the information we receive can help us make robust and informed decisions about commissioning local health services.

We work with local Healthwatch organisations as well as existing community and voluntary groups to make sure we are effectively meeting the health needs of our population. You can read more about the groups that we work with in our latest Patient and Public Involvement Report.
