We run and are involved in a number of groups locally, giving people in Southampton many different ways of getting involved with our work and shaping local health services.

Healthwatch Southampton works to help people get the best out of Southampton's health and social care services - making sure your views and experiences are heard by those who run, plan and watch over health and social care services in Southampton.
Comprising a range of local patients and representatives from Healthwatch Southampton, the voluntary sector, a practice manager, Southampton City Council and our local hospitals.
Each of the local GP practices is a member of the CCG, and have their own Patient Participation Group (PPG) which gives local people the opportunity to get involved at a very local level and have their say.
Join the People’s Panel and help shape decision making in Southampton.
Becoming part of the People’s Panel is an easy way to get involved in giving your opinions to inform decisions about local services and issues. It will enable you to influence how services are delivered, highlight issues you feel need to be reviewed, and help you shape public services for your community.
We would like to hear from any patient or patient carer who has used any of the services in Southampton. Our Patients' Forum meets bi-monthly and is kept up to date with the developments in the CCG. The Forum is a consultative group and our senior commissioners attend the meetings to discuss their various programmes of work to seek feedback and ensure service user involvement in planning and improving services.
