Patient Assessors Required

Good environments matter. Every NHS patient should be cared for with compassion and dignity in a clean, safe environment. Patient-led assessments of the care environment (PLACE) help us understand how well we are meeting the needs of our patients, and identify where improvements can be made.

The assessments give patients and the public a voice to drive and influence the way their local health and care services are delivered.

Assessment teams are a collaboration between staff and patient assessors, with patient assessors making up at least 50 per cent of the assessment team. Anyone who uses the service can be a patient assessor, including current patients, their family and visitors, carers, patient advocates or patient council members. NHS Foundation Trust Governors can also be patient assessors.

Full training and assessment forms will be provided and reimbursements of expenses are offered in line with Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust finance policy.

We are looking for assessors from all communities, no matter what background, age, or disability to represent our wonderful city of culture.
