Local Engagement Board

Our quarterly public Local Engagement Boards (LEBs) discuss important health issues and services to help shape, improve and develop local NHS services. LEBs can involve presentations on healthcare and CCG plans and developments, followed by the opportunity for discussion.  On occasions we target particular groups of people to ensure that those who may not always have their voices heard have the opportunity to get involved.

The next LEB is on Wednesday 28 August in the Marquee at The Lord Nelson in Monkton Village, Jarrow from 1-3pm.  There will be a variety of stall holders with information about health and social care.  There will be an opportunity to have an NHS Health Check and find out if you are at risk of diabetes as well as finding out about the work of the Clinical Commissioning Group.

A further LEB will take place in December 2019 – more information to follow at a later date.

If you would like further information about the Local Engagement Boards and how you can attend please email Helen Ruffell – helen.ruffell@nhs.net – or call 0191 2831903.

Information from previous Local Engagement Boards is posted below.

On Wednesday 28 August from 1-3pm we welcome all residents to be part of a fun information event focused on health, wellbeing and future plans for healthcare locally.  Held in a marquee at the Lord Nelson pub in Monkton village, the event will offer something for all.  There will be around 30 stalls with all sorts of local organisations including the Stroke Association, Healthwatch, the Alzheimer’s Society and Change 4 Life (full list of stall holders below).  Visitors aged 40-70 will be invited to have an NHS health check, and anyone can chose to have a diabetes health check.  It’s also a chance to catch up on plans for the Path to Excellence programme, urgent care, long term conditions and end of life care services.  There will be the chance to look inside an ambulance and a healthy salad lunch will be available along with tea and coffee.

10 June

On 10 June 2019 Dr Jon Tose, Clinical Director at South Tyneside CCG, led the LEB at Whitburn Academy with Health and Social Care Year 12 students.  The topic of the LEB was Diagnosing Illness.  Jon worked with the students to enable them to understand how doctors and other health professionals diagnose some common medical conditions.  The LEB included five case studies which helped students to understand symptoms, signs, measurements and investigations which will be useful for the students’ coursework.

International Women’s Day Invitation 9 March

The findings of the community palliative care team survey will be forwarded to the team who will follow up this initial piece of work by organising focus group/s with those women who expressed an interest in being involved.

The Path to Excellence Phase Two survey is part of a wider piece of work being carried out across South Tyneside and Sunderland.  Over the past 12 months, we’ve listened to the views of over 9000 staff, patients, the public and key stakeholders and we have developed a range of evaluation criteria which we will use to help assess the working list of ideas.  The evaluation criteria have been put into five main themes, the survey is asking which are the most important when thinking about developing local hospital services. The feedback will help us understand what priority to place on the different themes.
