PPIAG social media posts 16Better Care Together partners in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are inviting people passionate about health and social care to volunteer their time and apply to sit on a new public and patient assurance group.

At a very exciting yet challenging time in the history of the NHS it is more important than ever before to have the help of vibrant and creative people, who can help to ensure that local care is designed around the needs of patients.

People who feel they can review feedback and opinions received about healthcare and decide if they have been listened to and considered, are encouraged to apply to be part of the new Public and Patient Involvement Assurance Group.

Members of the group will be helping to ensure that better quality care is provided in a way that matters to local residents.  They will also be at the forefront of supporting the design of plans and proposals for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
