Recruitment of Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partners for digital health programmes

Published: 15/08/2018

 NHS England is looking for expert Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partners who have a good knowledge and understanding of the health and care system nationally, regionally and/or locally to join its various advisory groups, and help shape NHS digital health services for people, patients and carers.

The main role of PPV partners is to ensure that patient voice is heard within the various groups by constructively challenging, offering insight and views from a patient/citizen perspective.

We are specifically looking for PPV partners who can demonstrate an understanding of and who have a strong interest in digital health services and the opportunity they provide in empowering people and patients to manage their health and care.

Membership of the groups is for 12 months initially, and will then be reviewed.

The closing date for applications is Monday 3 September 2018 (midnight).

Interviews (face to face or online) will be held week commencing 17 September 2018.

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, 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.

Please go to the application form and information pack to apply and for further details. If you would like to receive an application pack in other formats, such as hard copy, or you have any other questions about this opportunity, please contact england.digitalhealth@nhs.net.
