These Patient Public Voices (PPV) roles offer a chance to have real impact in supporting the commissioning of specialised services across England. These services cover treatments for complex conditions like rare cancers, genetic disorders, and other rare medical conditions or surgical procedures. PPV partners ensure patients and the public are at the heart of specialised commissioning - informing, supporting and influencing the work of Programmes of Care and Clinical Reference Groups. Those taking part receive a fee.

Your out-of-pocket expenses will be covered / reimbursed AND they should be offered an involvement payment from NHS England of £150 per day (more than four hours) or £75 per half day (four hours or less). PPV Partners can choose to refuse the payment or accept a reduced amount should they so wish
