Public Participation

Whenever opportunities arise, we are keen to encourage local people to feedback about different proposals to change how local services are commissioned and provided. This page provides links to engagement and consultation activities currently underway that the public are invited to contribute to:

Healthwatch Portsmouth Priorities 2018/2019- – open until 30th April 2018

 We currently have a student from the University of Portsmouth on placement with us conducting a community research project to find out about current patient experience with social and health care services and to learn about issues faced with the service that are received.If you or someone you know are living in Portsmouth, are currently receiving support for a long term mental health condition and olanzapine (the antipsychotic drug) was prescribed for your treatment we would be really grateful if you could take 5 minutes to complete our survey.

  • Big Health Conversation – Phase one of ‘Your big Health Conversation’ has now closed – information about the feedback received, and the next steps, will be published shortly.
  • GP services in the future – Portsmouth CCG would like to hear your views about what’s important when you visit your GP surgery.
  • Future of St James’ and St Mary’s estate
  • Public Consultation– The NHSCC & NHS England have partnered up to launch a public consultation to reduce the prescription of over-the-counter medicines for 33 minor short-term health concerns. This consultation aims to provide you with information about proposed national guidance and seek your views about the proposal. No responses will be accepted after the 14th of March.
