The Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Partners Policy sets out how NHS England supports PPV partners to be involved in its work. PPV partners include patients, service users, carers, families and other members of the public who are involved in NHS England’s work in different ways. The policy sets out the support and governance arrangements in place to enable PPV partners to be effective in their roles.
NHS England aims to ensure that Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Partners are not out of pocket when they support its work and ‘Working with our Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Partners – reimbursing expenses and paying involvement payments’ sets out when and what financial support is available. It provides details on reimbursing PPV partner expenses and, in certain circumstances, offering involvement payments.
