Could you be a partner in NHS Specialised Commissioning?

Still time to apply for a PPV role with NHS specialised services – deadline 24 January

The application deadline for Specialised Commissioning Patient Public Voice (PPV) partner roles in NHS England and NHS Improvement has been extended to Sunday 24 January, so there’s still time to apply.
 
You can find all current vacancies and how to apply here
 
There are a wide range of roles available for user voices; for people with lived experience of specific clinical areas (for our Clinical Reference Groups) through to broader roles which require less specific experience of services (such as our Patient Public Voice Assurance Group). These are all strategic roles with an attached involvement fee in line with NHS England and NHS Improvement’s PPV Partners policy.
 
This is a great opportunity to influence how specialised services are commissioned. Please do take a look to see if there is something you are interested in applying for, and also share the vacancies through your networks.
 
Find out more from the lay chair of our Patient Public Voice Assurance Group about how being involved as a PPV partner has impact.
Hear from some of our Specialised Commissioning PPV partners about why they’re involved.
 
NHS England and NHS Improvement is committed to ensuring PPV opportunities are inclusive, and that a broad range of people with different experiences and perspectives inform our work. We would particularly encourage applications from people from a BAME background and people from other groups that experience health inequalities.
