Patient Participation Forum
The Patient Participation Forum (PPF) is a voluntary group which champions the voice of the patient in the quality of care provided at Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust (University Hospital Lewisham and Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich).
We actively participate in service review and redesign projects and transformation programmes, ensuring that the patient viewpoint is always considered.
We also take part in Quality Improvement (QI) projects, and work with the QI Team to ensure that appropriate training is available for service users who want to get involved in this particular type of project.
Service audits and quality reviews are another aspect where patient input is invaluable, and we are increasingly involved in supporting these.
Our work involves regular attendance at meetings (usually online) and some site visits.
We work closely with, and are supported by, the Trust’s Patient Experience Team.
If you are interested in finding out more about our PPF or any other types of public involvement at Lewisham and Greenwich Trust, please contact Patient Experience on LG.PatientExperienceLGT@nhs.net.
