We have developed a public membership group called the Health Forum, where patients and communities can stay in touch with the WSCCG and have a voice on local issues relating to health and healthcare. From time to time we look to the Health Forum for new members of our Community Engagement Group – a small group of people who work closely with the WSCCG at a strategic level.
Any individual who lives in the west Suffolk area or who has a connection to the area (eg: works here, or is the carer of someone who lives here) is welcome to join the Health Forum.
Any community group, voluntary organisation or stakeholder which has an interest in health and healthcare in west Suffolk can also join.
Membership is free.
As a member of the Health Forum:
- you will receive a newsletter updating you on healthcare and health news
- occasionally, you may be invited to take part in projects, surveys and meetings that interest you. Participation is always optional
- you will hear about the Community Engagement Group’s work and will be the first to hear if we are looking for new members
- you can choose how much you would like to get involved.
