Monitoring Fairness in the NHS

There are inequalities in the quantity, quality and outcomes of NHS care received by rich and poor people. This research project aims to develop new indicators for monitoring NHS performance in reducing these inequalities.  The research is funded by the NHS National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and further details are available on the NIHR project website.

We would like to know your views on fairness in the NHS to help us select meaningful indicators that address public concerns.

We are holding further Citizens' Panel Meetings at The University of York on Saturday 26 April 2014 and Saturday 3 May 2014. We are looking for members of the public to take part in discussions in small and large groups, facilitated by the research team. Each participant will receive a one-off gift payment as a thank you for their time, at a rate of approximately £10 per hour depending on the length of the meeting.

Places on the Citizens’ Panels will be limited, so early application is advised. We would like a diverse mix of people but otherwise will offer places on a first come, first served basis.
