N.A.P.P. has launched a new piece of guidance aimed at Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) – Top Tips for good CCG engagement with Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). It is available here.
The resource was commissioned by NHS England as part of their refreshed involvement guidance which has just been published.
N.A.P.P. Chairman and President, Patricia Wilkie, said “CCGs play an important role in helping ensure the provision of good primary care and are well-placed to support and engage with PPGs. Our Top Tips guidance sets out some simple, but effective, ways in which CCGs can work with PPGs, and I am pleased we have been able to work with NHS England to ensure the voice of PPGs features in their resources.”
The guidance complements other N.A.P.P. resources including the Building Better Participation toolkit.
