NHS England’s Stakeholder Forum is looking for patient and public volunteers (PPV) to help shape its GP online services.  The main role of PPV partners is to ensure patient voice is heard and to keep the programme to its core purpose of improving outcomes, safety and efficiency.  PPV partners will have an opportunity to influence the direction of the programme and the associated systems and products. 

NHS England  is looking for people who can represent the views of patients and to help promote the programme through their own networks, both nationally and locally. Other members of the forum include representatives from the voluntary sector, supplier partners and clinical and programme partners.

Membership of the group is for 12 months initially.  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. 

Applications must be received before 9 June 2017.  For more information and to receive an application form and information pack, contactthe Patient Online team on 07814 228 917 / This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
