Health leaders are looking to appoint volunteer lay members help health commissioners to improve the quality of local health services.

The appeal comes from leaders of NHS Mansfield & Ashfield and NHS Newark & Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Groups who are looking for applications from people, living in the areas served by the CCGs, interested in providing the patient viewpoint on the Quality Forum.

The Quality Forum meets regularly to look at complaints, incidents, compliments and other patient and public feedback about hospital, GP and other NHS services in our local area. They then share insights about how NHS services can further develop to improve quality and safety. Anyone interested should contact Julie Andrews on 01623 673329.
