Welcome to Patient Voice Panel
The Patient Voice Panel is an exciting new way for you to work with NHS Walsall CCG to better understand and help to shape local healthcare services. There is also an opportunity to share your experience of using local healthcare services.
Membership is free and you can be involved as much or as little as you like. All we ask is that you have an interest in the NHS and a passion for making things better for Walsall.
No experience is needed and we won’t ask for a lot of your time; anyone who is aged 14 years and over and registered with a GP in Walsall can become a member. We want people of all backgrounds to get involved.
The information we ask you to provide when you register will help us to ensure our membership represents a true cross-section of local people. We will also be able to work out if any groups are under-represented. When you join you will also be given access to exclusive discounts as an NHS volunteer.
