Patient and Public Voice Partners needed for Quality of Life after Cancer Treatment Project

NHS England is seeking to recruit Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Partners to join the Steering Group for the Quality of Life after cancer treatment project. The group has been established to support NHS England to deliver a pilot project. The aim of the pilot project is to test whether collecting data about Quality of Life from cancer patients can help us to better understand quality of life after cancer.

The role of  PPV Partners on the committee will be to:

  • Represent a range of people affected by cancer who use health services in England.

  • Use their experience and knowledge to provide advice on how proposals may impact on people with cancer.

  • Draw on the views and experience of other cancer support or community groups (if they are a member), so that the work is informed by a broad range of perspectives.

  • Constructively challenge the thinking of healthcare professionals where/when necessary.

PPV Partners can receive an involvement payment of £150 per day (more than four hours) or £75 per half day (four hours or less) for an estimated commitment of six days per year. NHS England will reimburse standard rate travel expenses and subsistence in line with the NHS England Patient and Public Voice Expenses policy. Membership of the group is for 12 months initially, at which point membership will be reviewed.
