Patient and Public Engagement

We promise that the work of the South East Clinical Senates will be informed directly and indirectly by people who have experience of National Health Services. Our job is to say what good looks like, for our population – now and for future generations, and if we are going to do this, then we need to pay attention to the perspectives, skills and experience of patients, carers and the public, alongside those of clinicians and others, and work together in making decisions for the future and in communicating those decisions.
