Communicating and engaging with our residents is key to achieving our vision. We are committed to putting patients first and applying the principle of ‘No decision about me without me’ in our commissioning approach. We use the NHS England Principles for Participation to guide our public involvement activities and our Engagement Strategy supports this.
