NHS Sheffield's Advisory Forum is made up of members of the general public. Its membership includes a diverse range of people with the aim of reflecting the population as far as possible. It aims to provide the public with further opportunities to give their views on key decisions and developments around health services in the city.
Forty local people from different parts of the city make up the Advisory Forum. They include people from different backgrounds and ages, from black and ethnic minority communities, people who are disabled and people with health conditions.
Advisory Forum members have already been involved in a number of important projects, including helping to direct over £250,000 to projects in Sheffield which will further improve compassion, dignity, privacy and respect in patient care.
More information on this project and the Advisory Forum's role can be found here.
Members of the Advisory Forum provide an independent voice and have been recruited by Voluntary Action Sheffield. Voluntary Sheffield act as an independent body and provide support to Advisory Forum members.
