Fareham and Gosport CCG has developed two Locality Patient Groups based around the Patient Participation Groups. There is one group in Fareham and one group in Gosport. This has created a feedback loop between the practices Patient Participation Groups and the CCG.
The Locality Patient Groups have a representative from every practice Patient Participation Group in the area, one of whom is elected as chair. The chairs of the Locality Patient Groups attend the Community Engagement Committee. This allows information to flow between the practice Patient Participation Groups and the Partnership Board and back to the practice Patient Participation Groups.
Both groups have the same Terms of Reference which provide further details about the groups role.
