Help shape the future of local health and care services
20 July 2022
Your local NHS is searching for people to join a new NHS committee to ensure the views and experiences of people living in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin influence future health and care services.
The Equality and Involvement Committee will also play a key role in making sure that local health and care plans consider the needs of people who experience the greatest inequalities in accessing services and the poorest health outcomes.
Edna Boampong, Director of Communications and Engagement for NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who feels strongly about involving people in service development and closing the gap on health inequalities.
“Making sure that our services are designed and developed in ways that enable everyone in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin to have the same opportunity to live a healthy life is one of our biggest priorities.
“This committee will have an important job of working with NHS staff to check they have considered the needs of all the people their service plans will affect.
“As a public member of the committee, you will have the chance to really make a difference to our future services, improve people’s lives and their experience of health and care in the county.”
People interested in becoming a member of the committee should have an awareness and understanding of the diverse communities of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
Members of the committee will be expected to attend one online committee meeting per month and will be provided with the relevant training and support needed to assist them in their role.
The closing date for expressions of interest is Friday 19th August 2022.
