Did you know you can get involved in developing and improving health services in Camden? There are lots of ways to participate in decision-making and have your say.
Join your local Patient Participation Group
Patient participation groups (PPGs) are made up of patients from an individual GP practice who meet on a regular basis. These group of volunteer patients have the aim of making sure the practice puts the patient and improving health at the heart of everything it does. Find out more.
Join our Parent Advisory Group
Our Parent Advisory Group is a forum that meets monthly during term time to discuss plans that affect children and young people, responding to issues raised by the CCG and Camden Council. Find out more.
Take part in the conversation over social media
Social media provides a quick and easy route to ask questions and to find out up-to-date news and information. We often run campaigns where we are asking for your views about new or existing services, or asking for feedback about your experiences. Follow us now on Twitter and get involved in the conversation or like us on Facebook for regular updates.

Patient and public groups
We also involved the patients and the public in our planning via the groups below:
Camden Patient and Public Engagement Group
Camden Patient and Public Engagement Group (CPPEG) is a group of patients who support Camden CCG to ensure the patient voice plays a key role in our decision-making. Find out more.
Find out about the Camden Citizens' Panel
The Camden Citizens’ Panel engages and collects information on Camden residents’ views around health and care in Camden. Find out more.
Question time with the Chair of the CCG
We regularly visit different population groups to obtain feedback. In the past we have visited a Chinese community group, Camden LGBT and the Special Parents Forum, and in 2017 we will be meeting with visually impaired People in Camden.
Camden Community Education Provider Network (CEPN)
Established in March 2015, CEPN is hosted by Camden CCG and supported by 20 stakeholder organisations. Camden CEPN aims to coordinate education and training activities as well as workforce planning and development across health and social care, and in
order to better respond to local needs and priorities. Where possible, Camden CEPN activities are delivered across organisational and professional boundaries, because “when people learn together, they work better together”.
This approach supports integrated working, and also helps members of the workforce to learn about each other’s roles and organisations. To find out more about Camden CEPN and its activities, to take part in the forum discussions, or to become actively involved in the network, please visit: www.camdencepn.org
