Why get involved?

Patient feedback shapes Lewisham’s NHS


Involving patients and the public is a natural part of the way we work in Lewisham. We are committed to putting patients and carers at the centre of all that we do and to involve them in all the different stages of our business: from planning, designing, procuring and monitoring through to delivering new and improved services. We have a vision for our public engagement and a Public Engagement Charter which sets out how we work with local people.  

Involving you and your family enables us to understand what works and what doesn’t work in our local services. Knowing what you think about our health services in Lewisham is also vital to helping us improve the experience for future patients. You can play an active role in the decisions we make and shape future services.

How to get involved


There are many ways you can get involved.  You can do any, or all, of the following:
