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.
Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) enables you to participate in HSCB decision making.
Ongoing 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 this website, visit: Equality, Human Rights and Diversity
Information and documents relating to HSCB consultations, and surveys will be published on this website.
