Patient Engagement

Wirral GP Commissioning Consortium (WGPCC) patient engagement

Commissioning patient-centred care is a core objective of the WGPCC. In order to truly achieve the vision of ‘no decision about me, without me’, set out in the Health and Social Care Bill, it is vital to do everything possible to to:

  • Involve patients in decisions about commissioning services, ensuring that priorities and activities of the consortium are informed and driven by patients.
  • Provide patients with the opportunity to report back what they think.
  • Ensure that key messages reach as many patients as possible by using a range of communication channels.
  • Understand any issues that patients may have with healthcare locally, in order to identify solutions.

There are lots of ways in which you can become involved, including:

  • Joining a practice patient group: Most WGPCC practices have their own patient group that mainly meets to discuss matters relating to the practice, but will also be interested in what is going on in the wider healthcare community. If you wish to learn more contact your GP practice.
  • Becoming a virtual patient council member: Sign up to the WGPCC website and give reception your email address so you can be kept informed of what’s going on with healthcare locally, and you can take part in surveys and share your views. This covers not only what the GP practice has to offer, but also hospital and community services.
  • Joining the Patient Council: As well as being a virtual member, you can also attend  meetings with patients from other WGPCC practices. These take place every month and where issues are discussed such as what healthcare priorities the consortium should focus on, any problems that patients and their families may be experiencing with local providers, or ways in which services or facilities could be changed or improved.

WGPCC has also provided GP practices with ‘Get involved’ postcards, which will be displayed in the GP practice reception to enable you to provide your details if you wish to receive more information about the activities of the consortium, or get involved in one of the above groups. Please contact your GP practice about this.
