Annual Patient & Public Engagement Report 2017/18

The CCGs Annual Patient & Public Engagement Report for 2017 / 2018 was published this week!
The report summarises the work we’ve done in the CCG to involve local people and how local people have helped to shape services!

Get Involved

The Deal – Wigan Council
What should the borough look and feel like in 2030?

The Deal is an informal agreement between the council and everyone who lives or works here to work together to create a better borough.
The CCG has been out to some practices in the borough to ask people their views on what they feel the borough should look like in the future.
We have had lots of interesting feedback and would like to thank everyone for their input!
