How to be involved with the work of the ICB

Why patient and public involvement is important

Listening to and working with people who use services leads to better, more effective services and improved health. At the ICB we are responsible for many different aspects of health and care. This means that involvement from local people happens across a range of service areas and in  different ways.

The ICB’s constitution requires us to ensure that people, their carers and their representatives are involved in planning services and in making any changes to services that would impact them in any way.

Read our patient and public involvement strategy for more detailed information on how we’re planning to work with members of the public to improve how we do things.

This article from the King’s Fund explains how health and care systems hear from people and communities.
