Consultation and engagement between the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) and all of our stakeholders is an important part of how we make decisions.
On-going dialogue is a normal part of our work but, at times, this will need to become more formal and more public.
As a general rule, a public consultation exercise is considered appropriate for measures which are likely to impact significantly on service users and the public, or are of significant public interest.
Consultation on the development or review of policies or services is also necessary in order to comply with a number of legislative requirements.
The HSCB works with representative groups and individuals of the Section 75 categories to obtain their views. Details on our commitment to Equality are available on our Equality, Human Rights and Diversity page.
Information and documents relating to HSCB consultations, engagement and surveys will be published in this section of our website.
Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) also enables you to participate in the decision making process – more about PPI.
