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.
We are here to challenge, support and represent a range of views from as many of the diverse communities that make up Bradford. Best of all we are doing this directly with the decision makers, so the voice of patients and the public is heard and represented at an early stage in developing plans or strategies.
It's the job of the People’s Board members to offer views from the communities they are connected to and to help develop plans for engagement to make sure the right people have been consulted before decisions are made.
You can find out more about our work and our members by visiting our blog, where we write a summary of each meeting and reflections from members on the topics discussed.
You can also follow the People’s Board on twitter @NHSPeoplesBoard.
Or get in touch by emailing PeoplesBoard@bradford.nhs.uk.
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 recently opened up the People's Board to cover the Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven area.
Currently, we are still looking for someone to represent the Wharfedale 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 or would like an application pack, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Every year the People’s Board present to the Governing Bodies of the NHS Bradford district and Craven CCGs to give an update on their work and how public voice has influenced commissioning. You can find out more in the minutes of the meeting here.
You can read the minutes published from each meeting:
To support the People’s Board, the CCGs asked Leeds Beckett University to work with members and stakeholders to carry out an evaluation. These reports have helped the CCGs and People’s Board members identify areas for improvement and development of this innovative approach to co-production.
