How we link with other NHS organisations

It is important for the CCG to work closely with local NHS trusts to understand the experience of patients, and where care can be improved.

The CCG meets regularly with local trusts to share what people are telling both organisations about local health care, to discuss improvements that have been made as a result of patient and resident feedback, and plan how local people can be involved in shaping local health care.

This includes engagement reports, key themes from patient and public engagement, complaints and patient advice and liaison service reports, and friends and family tests.

The CCG are given assurance that the services we commission from our local NHS trusts have methods in place to involve the public and act on feedback that they receive:

Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
