NHS Public and Patient Involvement Assurance Group.

Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland NHS are currently looking for people with a passion for the NHS and creating healthier communities to dedicate a 3-4 hours a month to join other enthusiastic volunteers on a Public and Patient Involvement Assurance Group.

The role of the group, comprising of 12 – 16 individuals, is to reassure themselves that the NHS is listening to patients, carers and communities when it designs health services. The group has worked, to date, on assuring large scale projects such as the £450 million 'Building Better Hospitals' project – the transformation of services at Leicester's hospital and Covid-19 vaccination hesitancy project. They are currently working on the mental health and service provided from their GP practice.

Participating on the group means influencing some big projects to make sure local people have been involved in shaping changes in NHS care. This helps to ensure the local NHS provides the best health and wellbeing outcomes for local people including your community.

To find out more and to apply please visit the NHS website or call 0116 295 0750 or email

The closing date for applications is 7th October 2021.
