This would enable us to work together to develop new and improved health services for local people. Please complete our simple on-line application form here.
The Nene membership is open for anybody to join and is one way of finding out about news in your local area and have the opportunity to have your say.
The membership reflects the eight locality areas. In each locality there are locality engagement groups which together form the Nene membership. Each local engagement group:
has the flexibility to be able create its own way of working. In addition to regular meetings for example, there may be focus groups, special research projects and consultations that members can be involved in. It is recognised that not everyone will want to attend meetings. It is expected therefore, that a member will be able to play a full part in the engagement process by using additional methods such as letters, emails, web and social media such as Facebook or Twitter
has a patient chair elected by the members
has, through its elected chair, a direct input into the Nene Patient Congress who advises the Nene Commissioning Governing Body

The members of Nene CCG can be as involved as they want to be from becoming an elected Chair right through to simply receiving an occasional email.
Nene CCG is encouraging patients to join their GP practice’s Patient Participation Group (PPG) to help influence healthcare decisions.
Patient Participation Groups are established in the majority of the practices in Nene with the aim to bring patients together to discuss what could improve their practice, as well as health issues that affect them.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of their GP practice’s Patient Participation Group is advised to contact the practice manager at their surgery for more information.
NHS Nene CCG is keen to involve people in the decisions we make about your health services.
