Have your say

David Cook

"It is vitally important that the direction of NHS Wokingham CCG is driven by community needs, both today and for the future, and therefore we need to know and value your comments for the future direction of Wokingham's health and wellbeing.  As lay member for Public and Patient Involvement for the CCG I am looking forward to  the opportunity of having an ongoing conversation about the  provision of local health services."

David Cook, Lay Member, Vice Chairman of NHS Wokingham CCG Governing Body

So we need to hear from local people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, and people with a range of experience of NHS services. There are three things you can do to get involved and have your say:
