Patient Panel West Berkshire

The Patient Panel is a group acting as a communication system between Newbury and District Clinical Commissioning Group, together with member groups and the Patient Information Point.

The Panel liaises with the eleven Patient Participation Groups who interact with their GPs to ensure that local practices address the needs of their communities. Each of the practices are represented on the Patient Panel, enabling their views to be communicated to others and to the CCG.

The Patient Panel works with the CCG to provide and receive feedback on the quality of local NHS services and when necessary highlights areas requiring extra attention.

The Panel also works together with The Patient Information Point (PIP) located at West Berkshire Community Hospital. PIP provides useful information and sign-posting to support patients, carers and their families.
