Services and advice
Other services and resources
The Citizen Reference Group offers Sheffield people the chance to come together, meet and share their ideas and experiences of health and social care services. Citizens advise project leads and managers about how services should be delivered across the city. We would like to hear from people of all ages and backgrounds, who are passionate about making sure Sheffield citizens have access to the best health and social care services.
The “Involve me”, Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group has been set up as a way of involving people who care about their local NHS and who would like to be kept updated, or get involved and have their say, on commissioning decisions for the benefit of Sheffield people.
“We want to create a relationship with as many people as possible to give people the opportunity to hear what’s really going on in the local NHS ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’ and to gather views on health and social care to inform the key decisions that we make.”
Healthwatch is your local consumer watchdog for health and social care services. Contact Healthwatch about your experiences of using doctors, dentists, opticians, chemists, hospitals, care homes and other NHS funded services.
