THE ambulance service wants to hear your views through a new public and patient panel.

Volunteers can decide their level of involvement, from completing online surveys and feeding back on strategies to attending focus groups right up to participation at the trust board.

North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) is looking for representatives of all ages above 16 and from all areas of the North West.

Julie Treharne, from NWAS said: “Everything we do is for our patients and our public and we feel that it’s vital we hear their views and that they have a say on service improvement and changes that we make as a trust.

“Whilst you don’t need to have used the service to be a member of our panel, we know that our patients with lived experience could offer us a unique perspective as members which we’d love to hear. We’re looking for people from across the North West of all ages, beliefs, cultures and circumstances to help us build a representative picture of our community.”
