Engagement and consultation

When planning or buying local health services, we must take the views of local people, patients and carers, as well as the people who represent them into account.  Each year, we run a number of engagement activities designed to encourage local people to have their say about future health services.  You’ll find more details about current and past engagement activities below:

Current engagement activities

NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP)
The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) and Diabetes UK are working to help people at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes become healthier and avoid the condition. In March 2019, the programme will be renewed and and they would like to hear your views on plans to make it even more accessible.  Find out how you can get involved here. (Please reply by 25 May 2018)

NHS England – Your thoughts on ‘online consultations’ – an alternative way to have a consultation from your GP
NHS England is supporting local NHS GP practices to offer their patients alternative ways to have a consultation with a GP or other practice-based health professional online via the internet, rather than waiting for the next available appointment to attend in person.  It doesn’t matter if you have not used online consultations yourself – your views are still of interest to the NHS and it would be appreciated if you could complete this survey by Friday 15 June 2018.

Talk health Kirklees
Talk health Kirklees is an open and honest conversation about the future of local healthcare.  Find out more here.
