In St Helens we have 49 councillors the CCG work hard to keep each councillor up to date on the work we are doing from engagement, involvement and consultations to campaigns or gaining patient feedback or experience. The CCG produce briefings and resources which are distributed to councillors via democratic services, these briefings and resources are then used by local councillors when working with their local community to ensure our work reaches a wider audience. If you want more information on who your local councillor is or how to get in contact with them please visit https://www.sthelens.gov.uk/council/councillors-elections-voting/find-your-local-councillor/
Working with local councillors and the Health and Adult Social Care Overview and Scrutiny Panel
This panel covers the provision, planning and performance of health and social care in services for older people and vulnerable adults across the borough. It is also responsible for reviewing changes that the NHS and CCG are making to local health services for more information on this panel and other scrutiny panels please visit https://www.sthelens.gov.uk/council/councillors-elections-voting/scrutiny/
When carrying out engagement, involvement or consultation the CCG liaises with the scrutiny manager to ensure the panel is fully aware and involved in the work of the CCG so they can in turn involve local community members to ensure they get involve and share thoughts and views. The CCG leads if required will attend a panel meeting to present the work at various stages of the engagement process.
