Research seminar: Whose voices? Public and patient involvement in clinical commissioning

There is growing interest in public and patient involvement (PPI) in all aspects of healthcare in the UK.

PPI in decision-making within healthcare is thought to result in more responsive services and improved health outcomes; however, questions arise around the meaning and nature of ‘involvement'.

Little is known about the role of PPI within the new structures of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and their decision-making processes, beyond the role envisaged by policy directives.

This is a case study of a CCG which aims to explore PPI in decision-making around healthcare services.  Two types of meetings in which there is PPI have been observed by researchers over a one year period: CCG board meetings and PPI reference group (PPI RG) meetings.  Interviews have been conducted with CCG board members and PPI RG members to explore issues emerging from observational data.

This seminar will focus on the challenge of representation in PPI.  What is involved in the process of becoming a public representative on the PPI RG?  How is representation perceived by board and public members?  How compatible are these perceptions?  What are the concerns around the notion of representation?
