Patient and Public Voice

Health Education England in Wessex champions the involvement of the patient and public voice throughout education and training.

In Health Education England, in Wessex we involve Patient and Public Voice Representatives in strategic workforce development though our Partnership Council and Local Workforce Development Groups. Read more on our news story recruiting to these posts

We assure the involvement of patients and the public in the education and training of the pre-registration health care workforce.


We involve lay advisors in ensuring post graduate medical and dental education, and more information can be found through our External (Lay and Clinical) Advisors Policy Guidance


We champion and encourage all healthcare organisations to involve patients and the public in education and training through our Hearing the Patient Voice in Education and Training category of the Shine Awards and we are pleased to share the excellent practice in this area.
