In order to effectively commission (plan and buy) the right services on behalf of our local community, we need to find out the views and experience of the public, patients, their carers and other stakeholders, especially those people who are less likely to speak up for themselves.
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) who engage with their local community and build the feedback and views they gain from this into their commissioning decisions will be better placed to offer services that respond to the needs of local people. In order to do this well, we will need to communicate and engage with a wide range of people from across Blackburn with Darwen.
