Consult and Challenge
Consult and Challenge is a group run by service users and carers, who are ‘experts by experience’, and possess a wealth of knowledge on their own requirements and capabilities.
The group was originally set up to help disabled people to have a greater involvement in the design, creation and improvement of the local services that affect them. Its members include people with physical, mental and learning disabilities, carers, and representatives from the CCG and providers. It regularly invites CCG commisisoning teams and people from external organisations to present so the group can provide feedback.
Consult and Challenge run monthly meetings supported by the CCG.
