NHS England has launched a consultation on the draft guidance for working with people and communities. This will support the new Integrated Care Boards, NHS trusts and NHS foundation trusts to build effective, positive, purposeful and enduring partnerships with communities to improve services and outcomes for people.
It is statutory guidance and will be adopted as policy by NHS England and supports health and care organisations to meet their public involvement legal duties. It is relevant to other health and care organisations, including local governments, and builds on the work they have already done to work effectively in partnership with their communities.

Your feedback will be used to shape the final version of the guidance.
The consultation will run until Monday 30 May.
