Patient and Public Engagement Forum (PPE)

 The term patient and public engagement (or involvement) is a process of working together with patients, carers and other stakeholders (e.g. relatives, carers of patients, patient representative groups and advocates) to design and develop services and the Trusts future plans.

There are generally considered to be different levels of patient engagement: 

  • Involving people in decisions about their own care and treatment

  • Engaging people in on-going service delivery and in making changes to services or re-designing care pathways

  • Engaging people in organisational decision-making

The Trust's PPE forum allows for more opportunities for discussion and involvement in service delivery, development, strategy and monitoring of the quality of services.


  • The forum meets on a quarterly basis (every 3 months). If you would like more information about the forum, including forthcoming  dates, please contact Robin Chapman, PALS and Patient Experience Manager on 020 8973  3100 or via email pals@hrch.nhs.uk
