NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is the organisation that plans and buys NHS healthcare for local people.

We choose and buy services from a range of different organisations including hospitals and community health services.

Newham CCG puts patients and carers at the heart of what we do. We want you to feel that you are being listened to and that your views are making a valuable contribution in setting health priorities for Newham.

If you live in Newham and have experience of using NHS services, including carers of users of those services, we want to hear from you. Get involved and help put patient voice at the centre of how we plan, monitor and buy health services on behalf of local people.  

Through getting involved, you can have a say to help shape the healthcare services in your local borough.

Newham CCG is seeking enthusiastic and committed individuals to represent the patient voice on a variety of commissioning projects, programmes and tenders. 

  • Would you like to improve NHS healthcare for everyone in the borough of Newham?
  • Can you help make sure that local NHS healthcare is shaped by the needs and experiences of the diverse communities in Newham?
  • Can you offer constructive advice and challenge to NHS Commissioners planning and developing health services for all the people of Newham?

If your answer to the above is yes, you could join our Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement group.

We regularly offer patients opportunities to inform both our work on projects that enhance clinical practice and patient experience of healthcare. This entails research being carried out ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public, rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them.

These roles are voluntary, however, successful applicants will receive reimbursements for their travel and training to help them fulfil their role. Refreshments will also be available at some meetings.

Hear what Angus, patient representative for the musculosketal (MSK) structured collaboration has to say about his involvement in one of our working groups.

Tell us your Story

Newham CCG is always keen to hear from local residents about experiences of local health services.

A patient story is presented at our Governing Body Meetings. Please email us your story. 

If you are interested, please contact jennifer.keiza@nhs.net or phone 020 3816 3860. 

We are also empowering communities in Newham and across east London to take control of their own health through the power of sport and social networks.
