Watch the animation "This is my story" from Tom Grew, a representative for teenagers and young adults with cancer, about how he got involved with patient participation and research.

Tom joined the INVOLVE advisory group as somebody who had experienced ill health at a young age and then got involved in health research as a result. 

How do we make decisions about health services?

Our commissioning plans and priorities are informed by our work with local councils and other local and national organisations through our local Health and Wellbeing Boards.

The boards are responsible for producing a Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which sets out priorities for health and social care across our areas.

The strategy addresses demographic, health and social care trends and inequalities identified by means of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.
