From 1 April 2021, this website will not be updated.
The seven north east London clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) – City and Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge – will become a single organisation called North East London CCG from 1 April 2021. We are in the process of transferring our information to a new site. For more information, contact

Engagement forums

Lay member forum

In 2018 we established a North East London Commissioning Alliance (NELCA) wide forum for all lay members responsible for patient and public involvement. The forum, also attended by senior officer leads for engagement, provides an opportunity to share best practice across the seven CCGs, discuss common areas of work and develop NELCA wide standards for engagement.    

Colleagues can tap into each other’s expertise and problem solve together. Most recently colleagues have discussed the approach to local engagement on the Long Term Plan for the NHS.

Communications and engagement working group

A similar group to the lay member forum has been established for officers at a range of levels across the seven north east London CCGs. The group provides networking opportunities for communications and engagement experts across the CCGs, and together colleagues have been developing products to help the CCGs improve engagement, including a draft charter and associated programme of training to follow.
