Our Vision - Why We Need You

Our Vision

To work with, and for, the people of Brighton and Hove to improve their health and well-being by commissioning services that are high quality, sustainable and value for money.

Our Vision, Values and Aims are held in full on the Publications Page.

Why we need you

We need to work with you to make sure we commission the best services for you.   Information from patients about how we can plan and commission services that are easy to get to and helpful to use goes into our plans for new services, and for changing existing services to make them better.  This is such a key part of our work that it's also a legal requirement for us to engage with patients, carers, and members of the public.

How we engage with patients, carers and the public

Patient Participation Groups help us to engage.  PPGs contribute ideas, feedback and suggestions directly to their practices, and members can also be involved in wider work throughout the city.

We run consultations to help us gather information and feedback on services, and to ask what patients want from new services.  

What we do next

With information from PPGs and consultations, and from other sources, we make plans for what we will commission and how.  To find out more about how we make decisions, please check the Our Governing Body page.

What we have done before

We produce reports on what we have done before, which are all available on the Reporting page.
