Patient, Public and Lay Partners
Health Education England, working across Yorkshire and the Humber, views the involvement of Lay Partners as central to improving the quality of education and training for all healthcare professionals in training,
Lay Partners act as critical friends by observing and advising on the processes of healthcare education and training across Yorkshire and the Humber in order to deliver better training, leading to better patient care, outcomes and experiences.
We have worked in partnership with Lay Partners since 2008. Lay Partners are involved in a wide variety of activities to support us, including:
- Recruitment and Selection
- Annual Reviews of Competence Progression Panels (ARCPS)
- Quality Interventions
- School Boards
Through this public and patient involvement, we are endeavouring to link the quality of patient care directly to the delivery of high quality education and training.
