Have your say in ambulance services by joining the North West Ambulance Service Patient and Public Panel

North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) is proud to confirm its first Patient and Public Panel (PPP) is now up and running. The PPP gives patients and the public an opportunity to share their views and help shape NWAS’ emergency, patient transport and 111 services. Would you like to be involved too?

They have developed varying levels of participation to ensure people can get involved in a way that suits them best, depending on the amount of time and level of interest they have. It can even be done virtually!

Participation can include responding to surveys, giving feedback on publications, initiatives and strategies, taking part in focus groups along with participating in committees and formal meetings.

Membership is open to anyone who lives in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire or Cumbria who isn’t currently employed by NWAS and is 16 or over. Applications are welcome from people of all backgrounds, beliefs, cultures and circumstances to ensure the panel is representative of the communities served by North West Ambulance Service.
