Patients

As the public / patient interest representative (PPI) on the IHFD Governance Committee, my role compliments the mix of knowledge and expertise feeding into the audit. The role of PPI is essential for capturing the patient’s voice and ultimately ensuring that the patient experience remains a central focus for the audit.
