HQIP Service User Network
HQIP's Patient Network was established in 2009 and now comprises 40 patient and public representatives. Recently the Network decided to change their name to HQIP's Service User Network as a response to HQIP's larger remit which includes Social Care. Representatives work alongside HQIP helping develop not only PPE and quality improvement work, but also serving as an expert consultation group as HQIP continues to promote excellence in healthcare quality improvement.
The Service User Network comprises of individuals from locals and national audit groups and from one of HQIP's parent organisations - National Voices; a diverse coalition of voluntary sector organisations that represent patients, service users and carers.
Service User Network meetings occur 4 times a year, with ad-hoc consultations occurring more frequently via email and post. Members of the network volunteer their time to join working groups when developing resources and also serve as patient representatives in other steering groups, for example the independent Advisory Group for the Clinical Outcome Review Programme. Those interested in attending meetings and joining the Network, should contact HQIP patient and public involvement lead Kim Rezel on either 020 7469 2511 or via email@example.com.
