What do our Patient Partners and involved groups tell us?
Our Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) tell us that they like to receive information on what's happening within the CCG to keep them informed.
One of our Patient Partners told us that they were "really excited" to hear about the developments in primary care that will make it easier for patients to access GP appointments. Find out more here
