The Patient and Public Voice Assurance Group (PPV AG) was established in June 2014. It replaces the former Patient and Public Engagement Steering Group, which was formed in 2012 to ensure that patients and the wider public were informed about, and actively involved in, the development of specialised services during transition to the new commissioning structures.
PPV AG objectives are:
- To deliver a strategic, ‘critical friend’ function across specialised services governance, in respect of patient and public voice.
- To maintain oversight of the successful implementation of the model for patient and public voice and participation, including the development of assurance processes.
- To contribute to the improvement of services and patient experience in respect of specialised services.
- To act as a forum for a range of organisations representing patients of specialised services.
