Engagement events and opportunities

NHS Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has events and opportunities throughout the year which enable local people to become involved shaping their local services.

These can include topic-specific focus groups, workshops and online surveys alongside stands and activities at wider borough-based events.

The CCG’s Governing Body meetings are open to the public, as is the CCG’s Annual General Meeting.

The CCG is committed to ensuring that any public involvement event it holds, caters for the needs of all local people and therefore provides:

  • British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters on request
  • Hearing loops within event venues
  • Wheelchair accessible venues
  • Halal / vegetarian catering where possible.
