TOFS Trustee Graham Slater appointed as PPV Partner to the NHS England CRG - Specialised Surgery for Children!

Published: Thu, 14th January 2021, 01:43:00 PM

We are pleased to announce that TOFS Trustee and Honorary Secretary Graham Slater has been appointed to the role of Patient and Public Voice (PPV) Partner on the Specialised Surgery for Children CRG Clinical Reference Group (CRG).

This appointment is for a period of three years.

CRGs provide clinical advice and leadership for specialised services. These groups consist of clinicians, commissioners, public health experts, patient and public voice (PPV) representatives and professional associations which offer specific knowledge and expertise to advise NHS England and NHS Improvement on the best ways that specialised services should be provided.

They provide leadership on the development of clinical commissioning policies, service specifications and quality standards. They also provide advice on innovation, horizon scanning, service reviews and guide work to reduce variation and deliver increased value. CRGs, with the support of their PPV representatives, also help to ensure that any changes to the commissioning of specialised services focus on the needs of patients and the public.
