How we use your views

Your ideas and experiences about healthcare help us to make sure your local NHS is the best it can be.

We are committed to ensuring that our work is led by our residents, from gathering your feedback in engagement exercises, events and networks, to using local data to inform our decisions about where to focus our work.

Here are some examples of how your views, feedback and experiences have informed our work and local services.
