Please see below a message from University Hospitals Leicester (UHL) and the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) Alliance which we have been asked to pass on:
Could you be one of our new Patient Partners?
Are you a patient or carer?
- A good listener?
- Keen to improve the experience of patients and carers?
- Able to provide a common sense view on hospital services?
- Able to express your views clearly and concisely?
Then you may be interested in becoming a Patient Partner. Patient Partners help the NHS to shape services by providing a patient’s / carer’s perspective on boards, committees and other groups. Patient Partners also get involved in a wide range of projects including; seeking patient views, reviewing complaints, giving input on new developments and commenting on information leaflets and letters.
We currently have a range of exciting opportunities for Patient Partners, both in Leicester’s Hospitals and in the wider healthcare system.
If you are interested in making a difference to patients and have personal experience of being a patient or carer, we would like to hear from you.
