Help shape the future of your local NHS

NHS Telford and Wrekin CCG is the organisation responsible for deciding how taxpayers’ money is spent on health care for Telford and Wrekin residents.

We are recruting a Chair, Vice Chair and public members to our Assuring Involvement Committee.

The Assuring Involvement Committee ensures the CCG is engaging local people when it designs new, or changes existing health services, by discussing, challenging, advising on plans to engage and involve local people. No medical or clinical knowledge is required. Full training and support will be provided to enable newly appointed public members to play a full part.

 •Do you care about how local health services are planned?
