We want you to have your say and influence your local health services. When major changes are being considered, we need to know what local people think and your views are integral in helping us make decisions.
Consultations and surveys give you the opportunity to let us know how you feel about suggested changes and by taking part, you can help us to improve the NHS services we commission.
On this page, you can find details of current consultations and surveys relating to both local and national health services. Please do take the time to fill them out – every response is really valuable.
Patient representative for Sussex-wide audiology service
We are recommissioning the Audiology Hearing Assessment and Fit service which is provided in the community across Sussex. This service is available to those over the age of 55 years old for age-related hearing loss and we are looking for someone who is familiar with the service to join our planning as a patient representative.
The patient representative will be key in representing the views and needs of patients through the procurement process which will include contributing to service redesign, to change the way in which this service is provided. The CCG will undertake a number of patient forums and our representative will be responsible for ensuring that outputs of this work are included in commissioning and contracting decisions.
It is important that the representative contributes a patient story, to bring their experience of the service to the group and represent those across Sussex with age-related hearing loss.
