Our Health Our Future panel
We have started recruitment for panel members to join the Our Health Our Future panel – a new way of engaging with the public from B&NES, Swindon and Wiltshire to get their views of health and care issues.
The Our Health Our Future Panel is an online panel made up of a representative sample of the population from across our region. Panel members will take part in regular surveys throughout the year as well as form focus groups from time to time. Full reports of every survey will be publicly available and insights gained from the panel will be used to inform our decision making, strategy, service design and service change.
To try and ensure we develop a group that represents our population, panel members will be recruited through face to face interviews around the BSW region in the next couple of months. We are committed to ensuring vulnerable, disadvantaged and seldom-heard groups have representation on the panel and will carry out targeted recruitment to achieve this. We are aiming to sign up around 1000 people for the panel.
We are working with independent market research specialists Jungle Green to develop our panel and they will be out and about at events talking to people about the panel.
