Members explain the structure and membership of the CCG’s Patient Board and District Group as well as information on how people can get involved through groups such as Patient Participation Groups.
The Patient Board were recently asked to present at Uttoxeter U3 AGM regarding Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) and have produced slides to provide more information on the role of PPGs. Please click here to view the slides.

Working in partnership with young people
In December 2017, Patient Board members carried out engagement with over 300 students from the de Ferrers Academy who attended five health awareness sessions. The purpose of the event was to enable students to receive intensive one-hour sessions on health-related topics. The objective was to re-enforce the health-related teaching at the school and for the students to become more conversant of health issues in the future. This has now become an annual event with the next one planned for July 2019. At this year’s event the topics planned for over the two days are:
- Drugs and Alcohol, by the O’ Connor Gateway Trust
- Bereavement, by St Giles Hospice
- Dementia, by Uttoxeter Cares
- Body Image by the YMCA
- Mental Health by the Yes-s organisation.
