The Community Forum plays an important role within North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
The forum is made up of people who volunteer from the local community called community representatives; they work alongside clinical and managerial staff from the CCG.
These representatives feed back concerns and compliments from the local community to influence and inform the CCG’s decision-making.
There is a dedicated representative to support each of the CCG’s seven key areas of work.
How do I become a community representative?
Community representatives must be a member of the Accord scheme before applying to be a part of the Community Forum.
What is it like being community representative?
“It is very interesting as you do not know what you will be dealing with next” - April Baker
“After years as an elected public representative, including comprehensive training, with agendas being dealt with effectively and our contributions being listened to and acted upon, the role feels both valid and valued by others” - Diane Edmunds
