Involving patients

A transcript of this video is available at the bottom of this page

At HQIP we are proud to say that patient and public involvement (PPI) is at the heart of everything we do.

We have set out our vision, commitment and approach to involving, engaging and informing patients and their representative organisations throughout our work in our strategy.

We ensure PPI is reflected in our core business of commissioning to our resource development and within our governance structures.

Central to this commitment is the Service User Network (SUN). This is an advisory group of patients, patient reps and carers, who have an active input into relevant HQIP work.

Within these pages we have set out some guidance and examples for involving patients, carers and representatives for NCAPOP providers.
