Every GP practice on Wirral is a member of the Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), a new organisation established as part of the reorganisation of NHS structures undertaken in response to the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
How to become a Patient Council Member
Becoming a virtual patient council member: Sign up to the WCCG website and give us your email address so we can keep you informed of what’s going on with healthcare locally, and you can take part in surveys and share your views. This covers not only what your GP practice has to offer, but also hospital and community services.
Joining the patient council: As well as being a virtual member, you can also attend our meetings with patients from other WCCG practices. These take place every month and we discuss issues such as what healthcare priorities the consortium should focus on, any problems that patients and their families may be experiencing with local providers, or ways in which services or facilities could be changed or improved.
