New roles open up for patient and public partners

Joined Up Care Derbyshire (JUCD) is recruiting patient and public partners to help build strong and supportive relationships with patients, members of the public, and our communities.

This new role is called a Patient and Public Partner and JUCD is recruiting for patient and public partners in the Joint and Community Commissioning Team and the Post (Long) Covid Operational Delivery Group and Workstream. We are also recruiting Patient Safety Partners.

The Joint and Community Commissioning team

We are looking to recruit Patient and Public Partners to help inform our work, we think it is important to get different perspectives and insights on the work that we do, particularly from members of the public who have lived experience. Our team covers everything from social prescribing to end-of-life care provision. 

Post (Long) Covid Operational Delivery Group and Workstream

We are looking to recruit two Patient and Public Partners to attend a monthly Operational Delivery Group and to be part of a collaborative approach to developing and reviewing the Derbyshire Post (Long) Management Service. The work of the Operational Delivery Group is to improve the patient’s journey and experience throughout the service including, working collectively to improve end-to-end health care pathways, ensuring equity of access and service delivery across Derbyshire, and improving patient outcomes.

Patient Safety Partners

The Patient Safety Partner (PSP) is a new and evolving volunteer role developed by NHS England to help improve patient safety across health care in the UK. Here at Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care System (DDICS), we are excited to welcome a team of PSPs to work alongside our staff, patients, and families to influence and improve safety across our Integrated Care System.
