Your Voice, Your Choice

Salford CCG's Citizen Panel has more than 3,000 members representing people who live, work and use services in Salford. The panel provides a way for us to keep you informed of new developments and information for health and social care. It also helps us to gather views from a representative section of our community to understand your needs and experiences when planning and improving healthcare. Anyone can become a member.

If you chose to be a member you will:

  • Receive a regular newsletter with news and information about health and social care
  • Be invited to take part in focus groups or panel meetings (this is voluntary)
  • Be asked to complete surveys from time to time
  • Be asked your views on a range of topics you are interested in Citizen Panel meetings take part twice a year in March and October. There are normally between 60 and 80 who attend and members have the chance to get to know each other, take part in debates about key issues and hear more about important developments in Salford.

Support to get involved

The CCG and Salford City Council joint engagement team provide support for citizens who would like to get involved but need help with certain things.  For example, we have a specialist who produces documents in easy read formats or we can produce information in different languages or large print etc.

We can also provide individual support plans.

When we hold events we provide support for those who need communication aids, such as BSL interpreters.  We can also help with transport to and from events.

For citizens who are involved in procurement processes (choosing providers for services), we provide full training and support.

The Engagement Team can help with any other support needs you might have.  For further information, contact amanda.rafferty@nhs.net
