Angela Burr has lived in Greenwich for 22 years, and joined the Greenwich CCG Patient Reference Group to get involved and see how she could make a difference.

Angela enjoys attending meetings and her contribution is helping to shape how people like her access services locally.

As a collective, the Patient Reference Group is able to influence decision making within the CCG. As a local resident she believes that the NHS belongs to all of us and local people should have a voice and be able to share their views about local health services and have an input in the services commissioned on their behalf.
