The People’s Panel
Working on a vision for health and care

The People’s Panel brings a hundred people together to help decide how to make sure everyone in Britain gets the health and care they need. The people selected broadly reflect everyone who lives in England, Scotland and Wales, with participants from all walks of life.

They hear real life experiences of what’s working well in health and care right now and what could be better – from patients, staff and people who run these services. Next they discuss what they’ve found out and weigh up what matters most to people.

By the end of this process, the Panel identify the changes that will help the most people, and the people who need it the most.

This forms the basis for what comes next. In early 2022 we’ll bring more people together, including frontline staff, patients, people who draw on care support, and those who decide how services are run, to design how to put these changes into action.

Find out more about the People’s Panel in this interview with Miriam, our Health and Care Director.
