Updates and news about future events.

We continue to work hard on the design of an emerging public participation and engagement process that aims to reach the heart of NHS England decision making structures including the NHS England Board.

NHS Citizen will offer the possibility of different kinds of conversations to be had between Board members, NHS England commissioners and citizens to shape the future. In the model as it is currently being designed, there will be opportunities for NHS citizens to participate in Assembly Meetings with NHS England Board members, held at least twice a year and also during the year at other events. At these, issues that have been flagged by citizens and are of national interest will be discussed and debated.

Camilla Child and Leslie Brissett from the Tavistock Institute are working on this with three other organisations and NHS England. The Tavistock Institute is leading the strand on Relationships and Culture change.

All NHS Citizen design events are held in public, filmed and broadcast live on the web. If you would like to see us at work, please look at the event in Leeds.

All events involve citizens, health professionals, the voluntary and community sector and other health service commissioners working collaboratively. Our next regional event will be in Liverpool on 29th May and following that, there will be one on 19th June in Cambridge.

Regional Events

We are holding regional meetings across England to get ideas and feedback about what NHS Citizen should look like, how it will work and ask for ideas and comments.
