The National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom is using Your Priorities to engage with citizens and to help people identify and discuss the issues that the NHS should be talking about. The issues might be concerning experiences of patients, users or carers, or those that highlight more general challenges.
Ideas that generate the most discussion and support or which have the biggest national significance will be brought to the Assembly meeting for further discussion with the NHS Board.
NHS Citizen has 3 elements:
- The Discovery space
Information and opinions are gathered through online and offline tools – social media, public comments etc.
- The Gather space
People can raise topics and discuss issues that they feel are important.
- The Assembly Meeting
Happening twice a year and considering the most important issues in an open and deliberative format, and hold the Board to account.Official project website
