Have your say
Your health and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do, so we want to know what you think about the NHS services in your area and how we can work together to improve them.
Click here for NHS Merton CCG’s communications and engagement strategy, which set outs the various ways we plan to communicate and engage with local people, as patients, carers, service users, partner organisations and the wider puiblic.
Patient and Public Involvement
Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is our process for making it as easy as we can for you to be involved and to include you in influencing decision-making on health services.
You can get involved in helping to shape local health services by visiting our feedback page. We will then add you to our emailing list so we can keep you updated on ways you can have your say, such as through local consultations and public events.
Patient Engagement Group
You can join our Patient Engagement Group. The group is a forum for patients, local people and carers to inform and influence the planning, designing and delivery of local health services. Email Emma-Jane.Leslie@mertonccg.nhs.uk to find out more or to put your name forward.
Patient Participation Group
You can also get involved by joining your local Patient Participation Group
This group is one of the ways Merton CCG ensures the voice of patients, local people and carers, including seldom-heard groups, are embedded in the organisation, embracing the “no decision about me without me” promise.
Merton Healthwatch gives a voice to people in Merton who would like to have their say on how health and social care services. Find out more about Merton Healthwatch.
Merton's Expert Patient Programme
You can also get involved by becoming an expert patient. The Expert Patients Programme is a free self management course that supports people in Merton living with one or more long-term health condition. Common long-term conditions include: diabetes, back pain, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, asthma, arthritis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The course offers a tool-kit of techniques to enable participants to manage their condition better on a daily basis, by increasing their confidence and quality of life.
