The recruitment of members for the new Our Health Our Future panel has begun. 

A new way of engaging with people living across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire, the Our Health Our Future panel is an innovative virtual forum in which members of the public can air their views on health and care issues. 

Panel members will take part in regular surveys throughout the year, and also be involved in focus groups.

Full reports of each survey will be publicly available, with the insight gained being used to inform future decision making, strategy, service design and service change.

To ensure the membership of the panel represents the local population, people will be recruited through face-to-face interviews happening across the local area over the next few months.

It is hoped that around 1,000 people will sit on the panel.

The panel's recruitment team will be hoping to meet potential members at the following locations:

  • Town Hall, Chippenham (10am - 4pm, Wednesday 19 February)
  • Moorland Social Club, Bath (10am - 4pm, Thursday 20 February)
  • Brunel Shopping Centre, Swindon (9.30am - 5pm, Saturday 22 February)
