Patient & Public Voice News

Now Recruiting Patients, Carers and Members of the Public to Join the London Clinical Senate’s Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Group

Would you like to help improve health and care services at a London level? Do you have a good knowledge of the healthcare needs and experiences of your local communities or networks? Could you present these views and offer constructive advice and challenge to senior doctors, nurses and other health and care professionals in a large group environment?

The London Clinical Senate supports the development of London’s health and care services and the delivery of high quality, sustainable and cost-effective care by providing independent advice to commissioners, supporting them to make the best decisions about healthcare for their populations. The role of the London Clinical Senate’s PPV Group is to act as the ‘voice’ of patients, carers and the public, so that the advice which the London Clinical Senate provides is informed by their views and what makes a positive difference in the way that people experience healthcare.

We currently have several vacancies in our PPV Group. If you would like to apply to become a PPV member, which is a voluntary role, please see the Application Information Pack and complete the Application Form and Equality Opportunity Monitoring Form. We would be delighted to have a discussion and give you further information if that would be helpful. Please contact Katie Humphreys, London Clinical Senate Senior Project Manager via katiehumphreys@nhs.net or 07730 382095.

The London Clinical Senate values diversity and equality and strives to reflect the diversity of London’s population in the PPV Group’s membership.

Induction, training, development and peer support will be provided to assist successful applicants in fulfilling their role.

The closing date for applications is 17:00 on Monday 27 January 2020 and interviews will be held for shortlisted candidates on Thursday 6 February 2020.
