Patient and Public Advisory Committee

Become a member

Patient and public involvement is essential in developing, improving and monitoring health and care services. Our Patient and Public Advisory Committee (PPAC) is made up of local people who meet with us on a monthly basis to influence and inform how we commission (plan, buy and deliver) services that improve the health and wellbeing of the people of Manchester.

PPAC activity and outcomes from their work can be read in the bi-monthly Engagement, Experience and Insight board paper for the Manchester Health and Care Commissioning board meetings. Members have co-produced their terms of reference for the committee.

The committee has developed a work-plan to implement from April 2019 for six months. A further planning session will take place in May 2019.

If you live, work and use services in Manchester then why not get involved?

  • Receive a regular news and information update
