Your opportunity to make a difference to your NHS

  • Have you, or someone you care for recently used the NHS?
  • Are you passionate about seeing improvements in Health Care?
  • Do you want to help us to improve the health of those living in Swale? 

If so, the Swale Patient Liaison Group (PLG) would love to hear from you as we are expanding!

What we do

We are a group of local people who act as ‘critical friends’ to NHS Swale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation that plans and buys most local health services. We work with patients, members of the public, third sector organisations and charities to help shape local healthcare, ensuring that our community is represented in planning and delivering NHS services. 

All are welcome to apply for this voluntary role

We welcome applications from everyone but are really keen to engage with people who live rurally, carers, young people, new mums and members from all groups who regularly tell us that they want their voice to be heard more often. If you feel the same way, please use this as your opportunity to get involved and make that change.  

This is a voluntary role, and our group meets bi-monthly. You will be reimbursed for travel costs and may be eligible for other out-of-pocket expenses as a result of attending Swale PLG meetings.

Purple Day takes place March 26 annually in countries around the world to help promote awareness of epilepsy. Epilepsy affects over 50 million people worldwide or approximately 1 in 100 people. In 2010, hundreds of people representing all continents except Antarctica participated in Purple Day for epilepsy and that number is already expected to increase in 2013
