Patients are at the centre of the government's NHS reforms. The aim is to empower patients to take greater control of their own care, to have a greater say in their treatment, to make more informed decisions and to exercise greater democratic influence over the services they receive.

This PCC event for providers and commissioners will consider:

  • How GP consortia can work with the local community to ensure that commissioning decisions are equitable and reflect local priorities
  • How GP practices can meet the requirements of the new patient participation DES to ensure that they are actively engaged with patients
  • How to ensure that patient representative groups are truly representative
  • How the web enables wider participation and greater accountability

GPs, PCT commissioners, practice managers and representatives from GP practices should book a place for practical advice on working effectively with patients.

Supported by north-west based social enterprise Unique Improvements, skin health specialist Galderma, patient engagement experts Picker Institute, Macmillan, the cancer care people, Moo Moo Youth Marketing, NeilMed Pharmaceuticals, patient experience and outcomes measurement firm CoMetrica, the Cheisi Asthma Management Support Programme, patient survey company InTime Data and AKD Training.
