Health commissioners launch new website and ask patients to ‘Get involved’
The NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has launched a new website, www.valeofyorkccg.nhs.uk, after patients and the public said they wanted a site that was accessible and easy to use.
A dedicated ‘Get involved’ section has been created to enable people to voice their views and contribute to decisions about healthcare services. Events, meetings, networks and forums have been made clearer in the hope that more patients and members of the public will work alongside health professionals, local government and voluntary organisations to provide an impact in the wider community.
Analytics on the old site presented that the CCG’s publications page was popular amongst users and so in developing the new website, a filter was added to make it easier to find different policies, strategies and reports.
The CCG have also increased the prominence to their Governing Body papers, to ensure that patients and the public can follow the latest commissioning plans and outcomes.
Dr Nigel Wells, the CCG’s Clinical Chair said: “The new website has been designed having listened to feedback from members of our population. There are a variety of groups who use our website for different purposes including the patients and the public seeking information or looking for services, GPs and other health professionals accessing clinical guidance, new recruits and our staff.
“We hope the CCG’s more accessible website will be utilised by all members of the public and that it is now easier to get involved in engagement opportunities, keep updated with local and national health news and receive advice to stay well.”
Patients and the public can visit the ‘Contact us’ page for details on how to submit feedback or make a general enquiry: www.valeofyorkccg.nhs.uk/contact-us
