Patient and Public Engagement Group
The Patient and Public Engagement Group is part of the East Kent Strategy Board governance structure. This group will play a vital role in helping the programme capture and make use of the views, insight s and experiences of patients, carers and the public ensuring their needs and concerns are taken into account. The Groups members include local CCG lay members, Healthwatch, community leaders from across east Kent and the voluntary sector.
Members have all committed to continuing to work closely with their local groups and networks to share relevant information and to support wider engagement as the programme of work develops.
The Group is just one method of engagement and involvement with patients and the public and there will be a comprehensive
programme of communication and engagement with staff, stakeholders and local communities throughout the programme.
