Forum Membership       Priorities Form


About the Forum:

The Voluntary Sector Health Forum provides a meeting point for community groups and health services.  There are more than 50 community groups in Fareham and Gosport that focus their activities on support for people with health conditions and all are invited.

The benefit of the Health Forum is that 2,000 or more patients will have the chance to influence how health services meet their needs and so become more effective.

Purpose of the Forum:

To engage, inform and support local health and disability groups in Fareham and Gosport so that they can collectively have their say, so influencing decision making, and:

 1.            Their work is known and valued by healthcare providers, including GPs.

2.            They can put forward proposals that will help improve the health and wellbeing of  patients with long term conditions and their families.

3.            They receive information about proposals for the development of health services by the Clinical Commissioning Group and can respond in a collective opinion, as well as individually.

4.            They can provide feedback or raise concerns about health services with respect to the specific needs of patients with particular conditions.

The Clinical Commissioning Group: (or CCG) for Fareham and Gosport has responsibility for purchasing health care for patients in the two boroughs.  They are required by law to consult with patients. The idea behind the Health Forum is to help the CCG to do this more effectively. We will ensure that we form strong links with the Health and Well-Being Boards

Membership:  A representative of each health and disability related group in Fareham and Gosport will be welcome.  The Health Forum is open to support groups, clubs and charities that aim to improve the health and well-being of their members.  Representatives of the CCG will also attend.

Meetings: The Health Forum hold 4 meetings per year at alternate venues in Gosport and Fareham.  The meetings will be set up and chaired alternately by Gosport Voluntary Action and Community First Fareham.  Groups that cannot send a representative will be able to participate by contributing in advance by email, phone or as is possible.

The forum is not a channel for individual cases or complaints to be raised.

Please let Community First Fareham or Gosport Voluntary Action know if your group, club or charity would like to participate in this exciting opportunity to make sure that all patients have their say as far as health care is concerned.
