What does SEAG do?

The role of the Somerset Engagement and Advisory Group (SEAG) is to monitor and provide assurance on the engagement work we do. This is to ensure that our engagement informs commissioning decisions about how we organise local health services, making recommendations to the CCG Governing Body and monitoring our engagement plan. 

SEAG has membership from many different community groups, voluntary organisations, charities, local community and voluntary services (CVS) and others.

It meets quarterly and is chaired by one of Somerset CCG’s directors. Its purpose is to facilitate the effective involvement of community stakeholders, including the voluntary and community sectors, patients, carers and the public, within the work of Somerset CCG by:

  • advising health commissioners and social care providers how to meet the needs of the local population
  • ensuring that the views, needs and preferences of diverse and varied groups inform the development of models of care for future health and social care services in Somerset
  • promoting good equality and diversity awareness and practice in service provision and commissioning in Somerset
  • providing scrutiny, support, guidance and feedback on Fit for my Future and other associated new models of care


SEAG meeting dates for 2020

Monday 06 April 2020, 13:30 – 16:00 at Williams Hall, Dark Lane, Stoke St Gregory, Taunton, TA3 6EU
