Board papers – agenda, supporting papers and minutes

Patients and the public can give their feedback/opinions on services commissioned through a variety of channels:

  • Via a conversation with their GP who will give this feedback to the Membership Senate
  • Through any member of the Stakeholder Communications Committee
