Specialised commissioning patient and public voice (PPV) partner roles

Patient and public voice (PPV) partners play a crucial role in specialised services and are represented throughout our boards/committees/groups to ensure that the views of patients, carers and the public are at the heart of all we do.

Specialised Commissioning is currently recruiting several PPV partner roles, which can be found below.

NHS England is committed to promoting equality and inclusion to ensure that our PPV partners reflect and represent our diverse population. We particularly encourage people from minority communities to apply.
