Application form: Patient and Public Voice (PPV) partner of the Workforce 2020 Advisory Board

Closed 7 Jul 2016

Opened 20 Jun 2016


NHS England is committed to ensuring that public and patient voices are at the centre of shaping our healthcare services. Every level of our commissioning system needs to be informed by listening to those who use and care about our services.

NHS England, and a number of its key partners, are working together on Workforce 2020, a programme designed to expand and strengthen the workforce in primary care. The Workforce 2020 Advisory Board is part of the governance arrangements for the Workforce 2020 programme.

The purpose of the Workforce 2020 Advisory Board is to:

  • Provide strategic advice and challenge to NHS England and Health Education England in relation to its goal of 5,000 more doctors and 5,000 more clinical and support staff in general practice.
  • Provide advice to identify solutions to the challenges faced by the programme.
  • Comment on and test proposals from task and finish groups.
  • Assist with external engagement through professional bodies.

We are looking to recruit two Patient and Public Voice members, to join the Advisory Board. Candidates will bring important views, perspective and challenge and champion a service user, patient and/or carer/family viewpoint, ensuring that these needs are met through the outcomes of the programme.

There will be payments of £150 per day (for those people not representing or supported by an organisation) for an estimated time commitment of four days per year. This is in line with the NHS England Expenses policy. Membership of the group is until September 2018 initially, at which point membership will be reviewed.

Please see the information pack for further details. You can apply by clicking on the application form button at the bottom of this page. If you would like to receive an application pack in other formats, such as hard copy, please contact or write to:

NHS England wants to ensure that its Patient and Public Voice members are representative of the population and that a wide range of people are appointed to these roles. For this reason, members of 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.

The closing date for applications is 7 July 2016. Interviews will be held on 28 July 2016.
