The people's board
Hello, welcome to the People's Board (PB) page! You will be able to see who we are, how we got started and what we are doing now to help shape your local NHS services.
It's an exciting time for the People's Board!
We have been working hard to represent the views of patients, carers and the general public of Bradford City and Bradford Districts for over two years, and now feel that the time is right to expand the People's Board to cover the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven area.
Currently, we are recruiting for up to four places on the People’s Board, with a focus on bringing in up to three people from the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven area. We are looking for enthusiastic, open-minded, committed individuals who are willing to bring important views from the community, a fresh perspective and challenge to the work of the Clinical Commissioning Groups.
If you want to chat to one of the People's Board to find out more, either myself or another member are happy to speak to you.
To apply, read and complete the following application pack:
Please send all completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applicants is 17 September 2018.
We are here to challenge, support and represent a range of views from as many of the diverse communities that make up Bradford. But, best of all we are doing this directly with the decision makers, so the voice of patients and the public is heard and represented in the health services we develop and receive.
This process of working is known as co-production and this is seen as the ‘gold standard’ for public and patient involvement.
It's the job of the People’s Board to offer views gained from their members and organisations and to ensure that the right people have been consulted before a final decision is reached.

We can assure you that we have been busy! We have made contributions to a number of key policy and strategy developments:
We have also been cementing connections with the PPG Network, Healthwatch, young people and young carers.
Our development has been monitored and evaluated by an external agency and we continue to strive to develop ourselves and work closely with the CCGs in ever changing circumstances.
We will soon have links here to documents such as our terms of reference, presentations and meeting minutes.
