Patient Involvement Partners
Who We Are
Formally known as Council of Members, the Patient Involvement Partners are a group of committed individuals from our local community, who are current and former patients, and are not employed by the Trust.
Patient Involvement Partners are our patient experts, and they all bring with them a wealth of different experiences to offer the Trust.
All members have been recruited because they wish to support the Trust to make improvements to the services we provide. Patient Involvement Partners aim to provide a link between the Trust and patient and public engagement by contributing their own experiences and perspectives.
The National Health Service is committed to involving patients in the design and running of services from inception to review, and our Patient Involvement Partners play a key part in achieving this. Key Responsibilities:
- Attend and actively engage in quarterly meetings
- Provide patient and carer perspectives in order for service improvements
- Participate in projects and workstreams offered by the Trust and to report back on these
- Review draft literature/ patient leaflets and offer feedback
- Attend various committees and working groups within the Trust, to provide public engagement and a lay member perspective
- Receive reports on patient feedback including complaints, Friends and Family Tests (FFTs) and patient surveys
There is a range of projects and initiatives for you to support if you have the time and commitment to actively contribute and to work with us. You can make a difference!
