Mark Weights, Lay Member for Patient and Public Involvement
As a Lay Member on the CCG Governing Body for Patient and Public Involvement my role is to be the voice for local people on the work carried out by the organisation to ensure patients, public and the community are fully involved in decision making and have the opportunity to share experiences of accessing NHS services locally.
As Lay Member I sit on a number of committees / meetings to ensure that the community are considered in everything we do. These committees include:
