Use your skills to help improve local NHS services


The NHS in Southwark is looking for local people to help its engagement with patients and service users.

The Engagement and Patient Experience Committee (EPEC) monitors and supports NHS Southwark CCG to engage with local people, ensuring both statutory duties and best practice are met in the borough.

The EPEC provides assurance to our Governing Body and is chaired by the CCG's lay member for patient and public involvement.

The committee meets every two months, and members include a GP clinical lead for engagement, NHS staff, Healthwatch Southwark and the Forum for Equality and Human Rights in Southwark.

The EPEC is a great opportunity to use your skills, knowledge and experience to make a difference and learn how NHS works.

We are looking for people who:

·         live, work or use health services in Southwark

·         are committed to improving health services and the health and wellbeing of local people

·         have a good knowledge and understanding of a range of engagement activities

·         have an understanding of and commitment to equality and diversity issues and how to engage those who are seldom heard
