Give your views on guidance about involving patients and the public

NHS England is updating guidance for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) on how they should involve the public in commissioning and ensure that patients are involved in their own care.

Patient groups and patients and the public can comment on the existing guidance, and what they would like to see in the updated guidance by emailing

The closing date for comments is 13 January 2017. Please include your name and contact details in the email.

Olivia Butterworth, Head of Public Participation at NHS England, has written a blog about the approach being taken to updating the guidance.
