​Join the Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Forum, and help put people and communities at the heart of the NHS Cancer Programme

The NHS Cancer Programme exists to improve early diagnosis, survival, quality of life and patient experience for people with cancer.  Forum members will:

  • help the programme consider and prioritise the needs of people and communities;
  • advise on involving people in designing new systems, policies, procedures and guidelines;
  • champion the programme's outcomes within their networks; and
  • build links with local communities, people affected by cancer, patient groups, and carers so their views may be reflected.

We would particularly like to receive applications from the following areas:

South East LondonLancashire & South CumbriaYorkshire & HumberCheshire and Merseyside

The Forum will meet twice a year, with further opportunities to be involved in work outside these meetings.

The closing date for applications is Friday 26 April 2019.

The Forum will have its first meeting on Tuesday 21 May 2019 in London.
