We know that the best way to meet the health needs of our population is to design services in partnership with local communities.
This is why we undertake regular engagement about potential service developments in the Coventry and Rugby area. We use a number of techniques including social media, our website, surveys, events, focus group discussions and one to one interviews. We also work in partnership with community organisations to better engage more vulnerable groups.
The current engagement we are involved with is below. If you’re interested in some of the larger ongoing projects, you can use the links on the left to visit their individual pages and find out the latest news. These projects range from primary care developments in the area to service redesign across the Coventry and Warwickshire area.
If you want to find out about previous engagement and consultations that are no longer live, please visit our page on completed engagement, where you can find the latest information and outcomes.
Finally, if you want to share something with us about the work we do or the services we commission, but it doesn’t fit into any of our current engagement projects, we’re listening! Email the communications and engagement team to tell us what is on your mind at firstname.lastname@example.org
