Our work with the community and voluntary sector

At Coventry and Rugby CCG we're proud of the links that we have built so far with the voluntary and community sector, and we are always keen to get involved with any group or individual who wants to help improve the health and wellebing of their local area.

"Healthwatch Warwickshire have enjoyed working with the CCG on various projects and pieces of work this year. They have been helpful in promoting some of our key pieces of work such as the NHS Long Term plan survey and our Rights to Access Project for homeless individuals. Our volunteers took part in feeding back on the listening document for maternity and child health services and were heartened that the CCG took their comments on board. We look forward to continuing our work with the CCG".
