Do you have an interest in research improving health services?
The West of England Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) Strategy group is an exciting new initiative bringing together four major partners to ensure a strong and integrated public voice in health research and service improvement. We are looking for people with an understanding and experience of public involvement to join us.
Who are we looking for?
Members of the public (including patients and potential patients, carers, people who use health and social care services, disabled people) who live in the West of England, and have substantial experience contributing as a member of the public to health research or service improvement. Since much of our communication is done electronically, it will be vital to have access to the internet and basic IT skills.
We value diversity and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
What is involved?
- Participation in six meetings a year in central locations in the West of England (e.g. Bristol, Bath).
- The opportunity to sit on the appropriate governance group of one of the core partners to ensure a strong and integrated public voice across the partnerships and good links between the individual partners and the collaborative PPI strategy.
- Opportunities for undertaking other activities for West of England PPI Strategy Group as agreed.
- Payment will be made for your time and your expenses for the West of England PPI Strategy Group activities will be covered.
