Their ambition is to be the hub for patient and public voice across the NHS in the East of England. They have three main priorities:
· To take a role in public assurance for the Strategic Clinical Network & Senate
· To be the ‘hub’ connecting public voice from locality to region to national influence
· To be the public ‘guiding conscience’ for strategic/major healthcare decisions across the region
“A connected and experienced group of people aiming to influence regional NHS strategy by presenting patient, carer and family perspectives.”
