Volunteer opportunity – patient and public voice for the Our Healthier South East London programme

Our Healthier South East London are inviting people who live or work in south east London to apply to join their volunteer patient and public voices, who are at the centre of shaping and informing this clinically-driven strategy for local health services.


They have places available on several working groups seeking to make improvements in the following areas;

  1. Cancer
  2. Children and Young People
  3. Community Based Care
  4. Information Management and Technology
  5. Maternity
  6. Mental Health
  7. Planned care (treatment that are planned in advance, for example hip replacements)
  8. Urgent and emergency care (e.g. A&E)

Places are also available in the groups that oversee the strategy.

These groups meet regularly at central London venues and usually during daytime working hours.

They are particularly keen to hear from people who can bring the perspective from south east London’s communities whose voices are seldom heard in healthcare planning, and people who can contribute to their strong commitment to equalities and diversity.

If you are interested in applying or knowing more about any of these roles, please contact Fiona Gaylor by email: or by calling: 02075252216 or 07500 835266.

The deadline for returning completed applications, to Fiona, is noon on Friday 9th of December 2016.
