“Patients and carers are the smoke alarms for the frontline of the NHS. They are often first to spot poor care and also have great ideas about how to make care better. They need to be involved in decisions not just about their care, but in designing better care for others”. Dr Phil Hammond.

The NHS Citizen Project involves developing a “design” concerning how NHS England can improve citizen participation and accountability; whereby patients, staff and the public can become more involved in decision making and hold the NHS to account. The NHS Citizen Design / NHS Citizen website is available, and local NHS Citizen development sites are planned.
