Recruitment of Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partners for Digital Health Programmes

NHS England is committed to ensuring that patient and public voices are at the centre of shaping our healthcare services. Every level of our commissioning system needs to be informed by listening to those who use and care about our services.

We are looking for expert PPV partners for a variety of groups who have a good knowledge and understanding of the health and care system nationally, regionally and/or locally to join our various advisory groups, and help shape NHS digital health services for people, patients and carers.

The main role of PPV partners are to ensure that patient voice is heard within the various groups by constructively challenging, offering insight and views from a patient/citizen perspective.

We are specifically looking for PPV partners who can demonstrate an understanding of and who have a strong interest in digital health services and the opportunity they provide in empowering people and patients to manage their health and care.

Membership of the groups is for 12 months initially, at which point membership will be reviewed.

The closing date for applications is Monday 3 September 2018 (midnight).

Interviews either face to face or online will be held week commencing 17 September 2018.

NHS England wants to ensure that its PPV partners are representative of the population and that a wide range of people are appointed to these roles. For this reason, members of the public can hold a maximum of two paid roles on NHS England standing groups or committees that are a formal part of the structure and attract a participation payment.
