Two patient and public voice partner vacancies: equality, diversity and inclusion in primary care

NHS England are looking to recruit two patient and public voice (PPV) partner roles to support a programme of work that sits within the national Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Policy Team.

The EDI Policy Team are looking to develop a new EDI Improvement Plan that is specifically aimed at colleagues working in primary care, exploring how we can improve staff experience for those from protected characteristics. To support with the development of this plan, NHS England are seeking two PPV partners who can share their experiences and reflections and offer insight into draft iterations. The successful PPV partners will be invited to join our project working group that oversees this programme of work, and will also be invited to attend relevant stakeholder engagement events.
