Our role is to improve outcomes for people using the NHS and other public health and social care services.  We can only do this with your help.

Find out how you can get involved in our work and how you can use our guidance when you are making decisions about your health and care options.

Public involvement

Our guidance relies on the real life experiences of people who use health and social care services, carers and the public to make sure it's relevant to the people that matter.
