The public are invited to attend meetings of NHS South Yorkshire and the South Yorkshire Integrated Care Partnership which take place in public, see Meetings and Minutes for more information.

If you would like to join the South Yorkshire Membership network, which has approx. 1500 members (aged 16+) who have been recruited to be representative of the population please email . Members of the network sign up to allow us to proactively approach you (digitally) to ask you to participate in our engagement activity. Members are not accountable to the population; you are actively interested populations who have signed up to be further involved in our work.

There are a number of patient panels operating across South Yorkshire, if you would be interested in joining one please send your details, including the area for which you are interested in giving your patient input to

We are currently working through the priorities highlighted in our Start with People Strategy and working with our voluntary, community, social enterprise sector and Healthwatch partners to identify additional opportunities.

You may want to feed in directly to one of our partners. Nationally there is an organisation called Healthwatch. 'Healthwatch is your health and social care champion. If you use GPs and hospitals, dentists, pharmacies, care homes or other support services, we want to hear about your experiences. As an independent statutory body, we have the power to make sure NHS leaders and other decision makers listen to your feedback and improve standards of care. Last year we helped nearly a million people like you to have your say and get the information and advice you need.’

In South Yorkshire we have four Healthwatches, they can be contacted by following these links:

Healthwatch Barnsley

Healthwatch Doncaster

Healthwatch Rotherham

Healthwatch Sheffield
