We anticipate that there will be many ways in which patients and members of the public will be able to contribute to HANA providing a different perspective, in terms of experience, interests, knowledge and expertise to that of the clinicians and audit managers. Once we have established the initial membership of our PPI group, it will very much be up to the members how to go forward, but one important aim will be to help to improve communication and engagement with patients.
We hope to have a planning meeting soon, probably in London, during which attendees will be able to share their ideas and thoughts regarding the purpose of the HANA PPI group and the roles and responsibilities of its members. Anyone who attends will, of course, be compensated for their travel expenses and time. If you are unable to attend this meeting, there will be other opportunities for you to contribute by completing surveys, reviewing audit documentation or attending public events such as the National HANA Stakeholder day, which we are planning to hold in early February.
If you would like to join this group, please email email@example.com for further information. You can even help us now by reviewing our “Information for Patients“ section or fill in the feedback form below.
