Engagement Assurance Committee

Are you interested in local health services? Do you think it’s important that people are involved in services?

NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG) is looking for local people from Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark to join its Engagement Assurance Committee to help us plan how we involve local people in health services.

We are looking for two people from each borough who have some links into and knowledge of their local community to join our committee. Members of the committee will need to read, consider and comment on involvement and engagement plans and reports, ensuring that there has been engagement with people from different communities across south east London.

Membership offers an opportunity to understand how the CCG and the wider NHS work, develop skills and knowledge in patient and public involvement and understanding and experience of working on a committee. See below for some key details:

  • The roles are for a combination of one and two years. 
  • The committee will meet every other month.
  • Meetings are likely to alternate between day time and evening meetings depending on members’ other commitments
  • The time commitment is likely to be equivalent to one day a month.
  • Meetings will be online for the foreseeable future.  
  • Reasonable expenses will be paid.

Further background information and the role outline, the application form, the monitoring form, and the full terms of reference are all available below. 

We don’t expect everyone to have all the skills, knowledge and experience required for this role and we will offer training, support and development to members to help people fulfil these roles. 

We are also holding two on-line workshops on 20 October for interested people to meet key people, find out more and ask key questions.

If you would like to find out more about these roles, the workshops or have any questions please contact Rosemary Watts at the CCG by email at rosemary.watts@nhs.net or by phone 07770 990 353. The closing date is  23 October
