We organise a range of public events throughout the year. These are open to all and include the opportunity to find out more about the work of the CCG, meet staff, and have your say.

Have your say
Patient Reference Groups
Patient Reference Groups (PRGs) have been set up in all local GP practices to give you the opportunity to contribute to the continuing improvement of your practice. You will be able to engage with your local practice and support them in developing the services that they provide. A range of resources to support PRGs can be accessed here.
For information on whether your GP practice has a group and how to join, please contact the practice directly. Members of local PRGs also form part of a network which is hosted once a quarter by the CCG. This network allows for representatives from member practice PRGs to get together with the CCG and get even more involved.
Patient Reference Group Network
The Patient Reference Group Network provides a forum for representatives from each practice patient group. The network is managed by the CCG to support members to share ideas, support one another and receive information on CCG engagement opportunities. The group is chaired by the CCG’s lead governing body member for Public and Patient Involvement, Priscilla McGuire and attended by Clinical Leader, Dr. Steve Ollerton. If you would like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01484 464189.
Patient and Public Engagement and Experience Steering Group (PPE&E)
The purpose of the Patient and Public Engagement and Experience Steering Group is to shape, steer and advise on engagement and consultation activity. This group is chaired by the NHS Greater Huddersfield CCG lay representative, Priscilla McGuire, Patient Reference Group Network representative, and members include Healthwatch, Local Authority and NHS Provider colleagues and VAC.
Healthwatch, a watchdog for NHS and Social Care services, take feedback (positive or negative) from the general public about their experiences of NHS and Social Care services in Kirklees. If you want to tell us an experience but would like to speak to someone independent, please contact Healthwatch.
Greater Huddersfield CCG works with, and supports, ‘Community Voices’ who talk to people throughout Kirklees about changes and developments in their local healthcare. Find out more here.
