Why not become a Patient Partner?

Patient Partner Logo

Interested in becoming Patient Partner? 

Are you a patient or carer? 

Are you;

•             A good listener?

•             Keen to improve the experience of patients and carers?

•             Able to provide a common sense view on hospital services?

•             Able to express your views clearly and concisely?


Then you may be interested in becoming a Patient Partner. Patient Partners help the NHS to shape services by  providing  a patient’s / carer’s perspective on boards, committees and other groups. Patient Partners also get involved in a wide range of projects including; seeking patient views, reviewing complaints, giving input on new developments and commenting on information leaflets and letters.
