New community engagement project in North Durham

Durham Community Action, funded by North Durham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is looking to improve patient, public and carer engagement throughout North Durham.

The aim is to encourage the local community to become active stakeholders in the development of healthcare services, working in partnership with existing patient and carer groups within the Clinical Commissioning Group as well as developing new relationships with the wider local community. The starting point for most members of the public and voluntary organisations is to join the free Membership Scheme which has two types of membership.

The North Durham boundary covers Durham, Chester-le-Street, Stanley, Consett and the surrounding rural villages.
