Get Involved

We want you to have your say about health and care services in Hull.

Home > Hull > Get Involved

We are committed to ensuring that patients’ needs are at the heart of everything we do. Within this section you read about how we enable people to voice their views and contribute to plans and decisions about services.

Engaging with our communities

Our plans and projects will only be successful if they are informed by the needs, wants and desires of the local people they seek to serve.

We are committed to involving local people as far as possible in the work that we are doing. We will strive to be as open and transparent as possible in all that we do. Read more about the commitment to engagement.

How to get involved

We want to hear your views and ideas about how we should tackle the challenges our health and care system faces. As we develop our plans and ideas there will be different opportunities for you to help shape the future of local services by asking questions, making suggestions and sharing your ideas. Check out our Engagement Hub for the latest opportunities to get involved.

If you are interested in finding out more, want to share feedback or ask a question, please contact us using the online contact form.

Current opportunities to have your say in Hull:

Working Voices

Health and wellbeing in the workplace is more important than ever. In Yorkshire and Humber, it’s estimated two per cent of working days are lost to staff sickness. Minor illness, back and joint pain and mental health are among the most common reasons behind staff absence, with those who smoke even more likely to become poorly.

The NHS has always been at the heart of local communities including the business community. We’ve relaunched Working Voices across the Humber and North Yorkshire region. Our aim is to work with businesses to help you support and your staff to improve their health and wellbeing.  We also want to engage with your staff, giving them the opportunity to talk to us about health services in their area so we can plan and design future services that will meet their needs.
