Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)
A term used to describe a way of involving people who use services, and the wider public, in how NHS services are planned and provided.
The Involvement Register is a great way for both service users and carers to become involved with us in the planning and development of services. There are a wide variety of activities to get involved in, for example, helping to deliver training, sitting on interview panels or by offering your views and opinions at committees and groups. Many service users and carers have told us how much they have enjoyed contributing through the Involvement Register and how it has improved their confidence and self-esteem.
The Involvement Register Guidelines provide details on all aspects of the Involvement Register. Please note: All those applying to be an Involvement Register member will need to have a DBS certificate before they can be signed up and begin undertaking rewarded activity. On occasion, because of what is in the DBS, a member might be restricted to certain activities and on very rare occasion where there is a potential safeguarding issue may not be able to join the register.
If you're interested in joining the Register please see the guide to joining the involvement register page.
