Our advice for clinicians on the coronavirus is here.
If you are a member of the public looking for health advice, go to the NHS website. And if you are looking for the latest travel information, and advice about the government response to the outbreak, go to the gov.uk website.
The QCR Committee, a formal Committee of NHS England’s Board, is recruiting up to three Patient and Public Voice (PPV) representatives.
The role of the QCR Committee is to provide assurance to NHS England’s Board that there are systems and processes in place to drive continuous improvement in the quality of services provided to individuals, and to identify and effectively manage any quality or clinical risks inherent to performing statutory and non-statutory duties. The Committee has been established primarily with an audit function, and will seek to add value to the development of policies and strategies through its discussions and the expertise of members.
Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Representatives may be:
- current or past patients/service users of the NHS, or carers of users of those services
- members of the public with an interest and/or relevant experience or
- staff/volunteers of patient groups and charities supporting patients, service users and carers of the relevant directly commissioned services
There will be an honorarium of £150 per day for an estimated time commitment of 9 days per year for individual patient or public members who join as individuals rather than as representatives of organisations.
If you require an alternative format such as braille, large print or audio please call Clare Wilkinson on 0113 2546 267 quoting reference EC13-47.
The closing date for applications is midday on 13 February 2014.
The Department of Health and NHS England values and promotes diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity for all.
