Get involved

We are committed to involving Southport and Formby residents in our work. There are lots of different ways you can get involved - whether you would like to contribute your ideas to shaping future healthcare, or to tell us about your experiences of the services you have recently used. 

Below are some of the main ways.

Join our mailing list 

The easiest way to get involved is to sign up to our mailing list. Registering is easy. Simply send us an email. We will contact you about any forthcoming events or opportunities for you to get involved.

Come for a 'chat'   

These interactive events are a chance for us to talk together with you about our latest projects and plans, and hear what you think. The views we gain from Big Chats inform our thinking about changes or developments to services. We also hold Mini Chats, which are more focused on particular health topics or services. You can find out more about previous Big Chats and Mini Chats from the right hand menu. Join our mailing list and we will tell you about all forthcoming events or look out for dates in latest news.

Current and previous exercises

You can find out about any live programmes we are currently running and details of the ways you can get involved, from the current exercises section on the right hand menu. Visit the previous exercises section to see examples of earlier programmes where we have asked for your views.  

Our governing body meetings

We hold bi-monthly meetings in public, so you can hear us discussing our work and making decisions about local health services. There is also a chance to ask your questions before the meeting begins. Visit the About us section to find dates for forthcoming meetings.

Join your GP practice patient group

A number of GP practices in Southport and Formby have patient groups. These groups enable patients to have their say about services at their practice and hear about our wider work. Why not ask your surgery if it has a group and about how you can join?

How else would you like to get involved?

We are always interested in hearing about new ways to involve people. So, if you have an idea about what more we can do, why not drop us an email?
