Pre engagement reviews and public consultation

Involving local people in improving local health services

Consultations are a vital way of getting involved and influencing decisions in Camden. Patient feedback helps us with planning and buying NHS services that meet the diverse needs of local people. It is important to us that local people influence local health services and the plans of our clinical commissioning group. 

Patient and public involvement through consultations could be on both local and national levels and we are committed to ensuring our consultations are transparent, easy to understand and that they consider the views of Camden people. 

Occasionally, we will need to formally consult about proposals. This is usually when there is a proposal to make major changes to health services, develop new ones or create new strategies or policies for health services in Camden. 

We aim to involve everyone living in Camden, including patients, carers, and members of residential and community groups. You too can play an important role in helping up plan and deliver local services:
