Patient & Public Voice Partner Programme of Care (POC) Board Application

Closed 14 Aug 2016

Opened 19 Jul 2016


NHS England is committed to ensuring that public and patient voices (PPV) are at the centre of shaping our healthcare services.  Every level of our commissioning system needs to be informed by insightful methods of listening to those who use and care about our services to inform service development.  There are a range of opportunities for patients, carers and patient representative organisations to get involved in shaping the work of NHS England.  Please see below for our current opportunities.

The National Programme of Care (PoC) Boards are six service-based programme boards reporting into the Senior Management Team of NHS England’s Specialised Commissioning Directorate. 

PPV representation will bring important views, perspective and challenge into the NHS England Programme of Care Board’s. This role is essential in championing a public, service user, patient and/or carer/ viewpoint, ensuring that the needs of the population are met through the outcomes of the programme.  The PPV members would be expected to operate at a Non-Executive Director skill level.  

The closing date for all applications is mid-day 14 August 2016
