There is a Patient and Public
Involvement (PPI) Forum for every NHS Trust and Primary
Care Trust (PCT) in England.
The PPI Forums are made up of local volunteers who are
enthusiastic about influencing and improving the way
that local healthcare is delivered.
The Forums are here to ensure local people have their
say in decisions about local health services.
They have statutory powers to ensure that health service
providers listen to their views and members of PPI Forums
are also provided with training and development opportunities
to enable them to participate effectively.
Each PPI Forum is supported by a local Forum Support
PPI Forums have a number of primary roles, which include:
views from local communities about health services
and make recommendations and reports
reports and recommendations on the range and day to
day delivery of health services
the design of and access to NHS services
advice and information to patients and their carers
Forums work together to share experiences and to address
