Each of the nine federation areas in Somerset has a health forum, which is support by Somerset CCG.
These give patients and members of the public the opportunity to engage with commissioners and providers
of health care.
Membership of health forums is voluntary and is drawn from a range of professionals, including:
- Community hospital matrons
- County councillors
- District councillors
- GP practice managers
- School representatives
- Out of hours service
- Somerset CCG staff
- Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
Local patients are represented by:
- League of Friends
- Patient Participation Group (PPG) Chairs
For more details about health forums please contact Susan Lilley (Patient, Public and Carer Involvement Co-ordinator). Email Susan.Lilley@nhs.net or phone her on 01935 385020.
