Citizens' Panel

 

 

We’ve all used NHS services at some point in our lives, and those experiences stay with us forever. We want to give everyone the opportunity to share their views to help improve local health and social care services. 

Over the coming months the NHS will be looking at how to best provide services across South Yorkshire, including looking at our urgent care, maternity, bowel, child and stroke services. 

NHS services in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw are going to be among the first to integrate how they provide services, and you have a unique opportunity to be part of this.

We’re working with our local NHS organisations to make sure that the voices of people across our region are listened to, and that you have a genuine chance to shape the future of local services.

If this sounds like something you’d like to have your say on, we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you. 

Join the Citizens’ Panel

We’re looking for volunteers from across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to join the recently formed Citizens’ Panel. 

The panel will meet for two-three hours a month and will give feedback on proposed changes, provide public voice to plans and help the NHS to reach more people.

You’ll be feeding into issues like maternity services, care of sick children, and the best way to provide cancer and urgent stroke care.

Meetings are usually held in the afternoon near Rotherham, but travel expenses will be covered, and if you need to arrange childcare we can help with that too. 

All you need to have is a passion for improving local health services and be open to the views of others.
