NHS England Specialised Commissioning Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partner/Lay member opportunities
NHS England is committed to ensuring that public and patient voices are at the centre of shaping our healthcare services.
Every level of our commissioning system needs to be informed by insightful methods of listening to those who use and care about our services to inform service development.
There are a range of opportunities for the public, patients, carers and patient representative organisations to get involved in shaping the work of NHS England, and we are currently seeking to recruit to a number of Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partner and lay member roles focussing on Specialised Commissioning.
Current vacancies include PPV representatives at a strategic level on NHS England Programme of Care Boards (PoC) and the NHS England Patient and Public Voice Advisory Group (PPVAG), in addition to PPV Partners and a Lay Chair for NHS England Individual Funding Request Panel.
If you are interested in working with NHS England as a PPV partner, to ensure that the patient and carer perspective is at the heart of commissioning, then please see further information on all these roles and the application forms on our website.
The closing date for all applications is 12 noon on 16 November 2015
We would expect applicants to have previous experience of giving a public, patient or carer perspective on health services and a strong commitment to maintaining a patient focus in the commissioning of health services. For some roles (indicated within the application pack) there is an honorarium of £150 per day for those people not representing or supported by an organisation.
