Public Engagement Team
The views of local people are at the heart of the commissioning decisions the CCG makes.
Involving patients, families and carers in the development of healthcare services helps ensure we commission the right services to meet the needs of local people.
We want to make it easy for you to get involved and give us your views. We gather feedback from the public through various engagement opportunities, including online/ public events, questionnaires and consultations.
There are many opportunities to have your say and influence local healthcare decisions. See what our Communications and Engagement team have been doing and how you can be involved in our blogs below.

How can I get involved and influence the work of NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group?
Listening to your views and experiences will help us build better healthcare services.
There are a number of ways you can get involved with the work we do:
Special Interest Groups – As well as the groups above we also closely involve national and local special interest groups when we are reviewing and designing services. Examples include The British Heart Foundation, Diabetes UK, Dorset Mental Health Forum, and Youth Groups.
Our key publications can be made available in alternative formats, such as easy read, large print or audio, and may be available in alternative languages upon request. Please see our Easy read, large print and language translation text document.
