Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland NHS are looking for people with a passion for the NHS and creating healthier communities to dedicate a 3-4 hours per month to join a Public and Patient Involvement Assurance Group.
The role of the group, comprising of 12 – 16 individuals, is to reassure themselves that the NHS is listening to patients, carers and communities when it designs health services. The group has worked, to date, on assuring large scale projects such as the £450 million ‘Building Better Hospitals’ project – the transformation of services at Leicester’s hospital and Covid-19 vaccination hesitancy project. They are currently working on the mental health and service provided from their GP practice.
Participating on the group means influencing some big projects to make sure local people have been involved in shaping changes in NHS care. This helps to ensure the local NHS provides the best health and wellbeing outcomes for local people including your community.
