Information in this section can help local people, VCSE colleagues, and staff to find out the best way to plan and deliver successful public engagement activity. There are a number of toolkits and online training resources to help you.
Training and Toolkits
The CCG co-produced an engagement toolkit to provide our staff with resources to help them to assess the level of public and patient involvement that is needed within any project large or small.
This helps our staff and volunteers to consider public participation within a project right from the outset. We use the NHS England patient and public engagement guidelines to help us with decision making.
This process includes tools such as a stakeholder mapping process, guidance for equality impact assessments and a template to address if the legal duty needs to be applied.
