Do you have a passion for improving health and care?

14th March 22

Do you have a passion for improving health and care? Do you want to put your personal experience as a patient, or a family member or friend of a patient to good use?

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Adopting Innovation Hub is looking for people to join a new Citizen Participation Group.

The Citizen Participation Group is being established to embed the public voice in the work of the hub. As a member of the Citizen Participation Group, your role will be to help to guide the design, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of innovations that are implemented through the hub.

The focus of the hub is to address health inequalities – unfair and avoidable differences in health across the population, and between different groups within society. Therefore, they are particularly keen to hear from people from a diversity of backgrounds, including age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity and income.

You will need to be able to commit to around three hours a month which you will be paid £10 per hour for meetings plus travel, and £20 per hour for additional work.
