Patient and Public Voice Assurance Group

Who are the Patient and Public Voice Assurance Group?

The Patient and Public Voice Assurance Group (PPV AG) works to offer strategic assurance to NHS England that effective mechanisms are in place to fully involve patients and the wider public in the development of the national specialised services portfolio.

The objectives of the PPV AG are:

  • To deliver a strategic, ‘critical friend’ function across specialised services governance, in respect of patient and public voice
  • To maintain oversight of the successful implementation of models for patient and public voice and participation, including the development of assurance processes
  • To contribute to the improvement of services and patient experience in respect of specialised services
  • To act as a forum for a range of organisations representing patients of specialised services
