Patient Client Council

The Patient and Client Council (PCC) was created on 1st April 2009 as part of the reform of Health and Social Care in Northern Ireland. We act as a powerful, independent voice for patients, clients, carers and communities.

Our role is to be an independent, informed and influential voice that makes a positive difference and advocates for people across Northern Ireland in Health and Social Care.

The Patient and Client Council will support you if you have a concern about any part of Health and Social Care. Our Advocacy Service is here to support you through formal and informal processes in relation to issues you may have had with Health and Social Care. This can include support during a Serious Adverse Incident Review. The service is independent, confidential and free to use.  You may contact the service at any stage.
