NHS England – Patient Participation Project (PPP)

People with lived experience wanted. Please contact us for more information. Inspirit are commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement (London  Region) Health and Justice Commissioning Team to implement their framework for the patient and public voice. This is an ongoing project that began with baseline assessing how activities of patient participation were being managed across the secure estate in London, authoring a set of standards and helping healthcare providers to apply them through an improvement plan.

A sub-group of experts by experience was set up and supported through supervision and training to take on the role of driving forward the plans and bringing the patients voice to strategic meetings and contract reviews. The remit of the project has been extended in 2019 to include setting up a steering group of patients, healthcare providers and HMPPS governors and leads to support the Smoke Free initiative that is being rolled out across the prisons.
