Consultation Reports

Where any of the clinical commissioning group’s plans or proposals represents a substantial development or variation of service we notify Cheshire West and Chester Council and formally consult with local people and wider stakeholders.

We undertake equality analysis in line with the Equality Act 2010 (and section 149 of the Public Sector Equality Duty) and pay due regard to the Gunning Principles in our approach to consultation by:

  • Consulting when proposals are at a formative stage
  • Clearly outlining proposals and the reasons for them so local people can understand the changes
  • Allowing adequate time for consideration and response
  • Taking responses into account and ensuring they inform decision making

Communication and engagement is vital to carrying out effective public consultation activity and therefore, each consultation carried out by the Clinical Commissioning Group will be supported by a detailed communication and engagement plan.
