The Engagement Oversight Group meetings are led by the Chair of the CCG, Mr Graham Burgess. The group exists to provide oversight of patient and public involvement planned, being carried out and completed by the CCG; it receives reports on all proposed engagements and consultations on campaigns, service re-design or commissioning intentions. Evaluation reports are also presented, discussed and approved.
The group is attended by representatives from Blackburn with Darwen Healthwatch, Patient Participation Groups (PPG), the CCG’s clinical engagement lead, and the CCG’s equality and inclusion lead to ensure it is inclusive and that “seldom heard” groups are represented.
Details of the engagement reports are included in a quarterly Communication and Engagement Report which is presented to the governing body and published on the CCG’s website.
