What is Involve Me?

‘Involve me’ has been set up as a way of involving people who care about their local NHS and who would like to be kept up to date, or get involved and have their say, on commissioning decisions for the benefit of Sheffield people.

Shaping Sheffield Event

Organisations from across Sheffield have been coming together to talk about how we can improve health, care and wellbeing for people in the city. This has become known as ‘Shaping Sheffield’.

We want Sheffield citizens to be involved so we can find solutions together that will benefit everybody. We would like you to be a part of this. Our next meeting is on:
Thursday 9 March 2017
9.30am to 2pm
Bramall Lane, Sheffield United Football Stadium, John Street Entrance S2 4SU

We will be talking about projects, along with what might stop them from working as well as they should, and how to overcome this.

Patient Participation Groups across Sheffield

On 30 November 2016, we held the second ‘Patient Participations Groups across Sheffield’ meeting. We are now pleased to share with you a report of the meeting which can be found here.
The topics that were discussed were Transforming Primary Care and Prescribing. All the presentations, along with the report, are available to support PPGs to have discussions around these areas, if they should wish to do so.

We are already looking forward to our next ‘PPGs across Sheffield’ meeting, which has been scheduled for:
Thursday 16 March 2017
6 – 8pm

The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane, Sheffield. S1 4FW

We will be announcing more details soon, but you can book now at
Have your say by Tuesday 14 February

People living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are being given more time to share their thoughts on proposals to change our region’s hyper acute stroke services, as well as some children’s surgery and anaesthesia services.

The proposals, incorporating public feedback, have been developed by Commissioners Working Together, a partnership of the region’s NHS clinical commissioning groups and NHS England to improve services across South and Mid Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and North Derbyshire – with the consultation being extended until Tuesday 14 February 2017.

Depending on where people live, some patients have better experiences and access to services than others and have come together to change it. If approved, the proposals would see some services no longer being carried out at Barnsley, Rotherham and Chesterfield Hospitals, with others becoming specialist centres for the whole region.

Until Tuesday 14 February 2017, members of the public are invited to share their views on the proposed option for the future of these services – with a final decision expected to be made by clinical commissioners in April.

Have your say on children’s surgery and critical stroke care here.

If you don’t have much time, you can complete quick polls about the consultations:
