Share your views and opinions on local services.  Help us to improve those services together.

What is the Participation and Engagement Network?
When you sign up to the network, your details are added to a database. If you are on the database, we know to get in touch with you when we are looking for the public’s input on things we are doing or planning to do.

How does it work?
The network is a way for members of the public, patients, carers and community groups to get involved in improving local services. We might ask you to take part in a survey, a discussion or an event. You don’t need to take part every time, just whenever suits you.

Who can join?
Anyone aged 16 or over who has an interest in the services delivered within Dumfries and Galloway. We want the network to reflect the diversity of our community and we welcome people from all backgrounds.

Who is involved?
The network is managed by NHS Dumfries and Galloway on behalf of the Community Planning Partnership which includes:

NHS Dumfries and Galloway
Dumfries and Galloway Council
Police Scotland
Scottish Fire and Rescue
Scottish Ambulance Service
Scottish Health Council
Third Sector (Dumfries and
Galloway)
Dumfries and Galloway Health and
Social Care Partnership

When one of the partners wants the network’s input in to something they are doing, they will ask NHS Dumfries and Galloway to let you know. You can choose the best way for us to contact you.
