  • Our Governing Body meets bi-monthly (every other month). These meetings are called 'open' meetings as everybody is welcome to attend these meetings and it is really important to us that people do. Sometimes there are items which must be discussed in private due to confidentiality; these items are heard after the open meeting finishes.

    Details of the next meeting

  • Welcome to our engagement pages!

    We are committed to working with the people of Wigan Borough.

    We want to know what you want from your health services. We want you to be involved in the decisions we take. We want 'no decision about me, without me' to become the way we routinely work.

    There are lots of different ways you can get involved with the CCG.

    Reaching diverse, potentially excluded, disadvantaged groups

    We use a range of engagement methods to reach diverse, potentially excluded and disadvantaged groups. The table below lists some examples:

    Accessible Information

    Engagement documents are produced in Easy Read and Large Print formats as standards. Other formats are produced on request.

    Accessible Information

    Marketing campaigns are run using a variety of different methods and styles to show the same information. We make campaigns accessible for different audiences, including children’s versions of information.

    Accessible Information

    Our ‘ Reader’s Panel ’ made up of local residents review and check public documents for accessibility and language. We ask the Readers Panel to review consultation and engagement documents such as leaflets and surveys.

    Accessible Events

    We make sure that engagement events and meetings are accessible, for example we have a portable hearing loop that we use at events. We ask people to tell us if they have any additional requirements when they book onto events, for example the need for signers or interpreters.


    Equality & Diversity monitoring information is collected as standard during engagement work. This enables us to see where we may not have reached diverse, potentially excluded, disadvantaged groups


    Any engagement work we do for specific projects feeds into equalities analysis. When the CCG introduces any new service or strategy or changes any existing service, we are required to look at how it would impact someone with a protected characteristic. (Listed further below)

    Reaching diverse groups

    We regularly attend community events where we have the opportunity to speak to diverse, potentially excluded groups. For example this year we have attended ‘Wigan Pride’ and ‘Festival of Ageing’. We collect feedback about services and experiences of care.

    Reaching diverse groups

    We attend Voluntary Community Sector groups to engage with specific groups. For example during recent engagement work for the Healthier Wigan Partnership we have visited the Wigan & Leigh Warblers and a Carers Group.

    Reaching diverse groups

    We advertise opportunities to get involved on our monthly Shape Your NHS newsletter, on our website and via social media.

    Reaching diverse groups

    We continue to offer small levels of financial support for local Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) to use on local projects. Some of our PPGs are doing fantastic work different cohorts of patients. An example would be the PPG at Shevington who run support groups for local people with Dementia and Diabetes. Click here for more information about the work of our local PPGs.

    Protected Characteristics

    When the CCG introduces any new service or strategy or changes any existing service, we are required to look at how it would impact someone with a protected characteristic (listed). We call this an Equality Impact Assessment. We look at the following protected characteristics:

    • Age

    • Gender reassignment
    • Marriage & Civil partnership
    • Pregnancy and maternity
    • Race
