Joined Up Care Derbyshire (JUCD), the partnership that co-ordinates health and care services in the county, has launched a new forum to provide local people with a greater say.

JUCD's Citizens Panel will give people living in Derbyshire the opportunity to share their opinions and feedback on health and care services, helping to ensure that services are designed and delivered to take into account ‘what matters most to people’. 

The panel is currently accepting new members. The benefits of being a Citizens Panel member include:

  • You will be helping to ensure we provide better quality care in a way that matters the most to local residents
  • You will have the opportunity to have your views heard by local health and care decision makers
  • You will find out about new plans and ideas for Derbyshire
  • You can get involved as much or as little as you like, i.e. in the comfort of your own home through taking part in our online surveys, or you can choose to attend one of our workshops or focus groups on an area of health and care that interests you
  • You will be reimbursed reasonable travel expenses for participation in face to face meetings such as focus groups.
