Norwich CCG actively seeks to ensure that its work is shaped by and influenced by the needs and views of the people who need and use our services. That is why we have the very clear aim, as set out in our constitution, of ‘increased participation of local people in health and healthcare decisions, both public and personal’.

In this way we try to ensure that the patient and public voice is at the very heart of our decision making. There are a number of ways you can get involved in helping us make that happen. You can read more here.
