Patient Participation Panel

Your voice matters, so let's talk! 

The Trust holds a Patient Participation Panel (PPP) every quarter (April, August and December every year) on the second Friday of each month 1000-1130, via Microsoft Teams. 

We need feedback and insight from local people, and you don’t have to have used the service to join the PPP, your opinion really matters and helps us make positive change to ambulance service. 

There’s no commitment to join every time or even for the whole meeting, feel free to drop in and out as your schedule allows. 

To become a panel member, please fill out the form below or, for more information, email us at .

What is the Patient Participation Panel?


Here at the South Western Ambulance Service (SWASFT), we are always looking for ways to improve the care and service we provide to you. We are keen to identify what matters most in your local community so have created the panel as a platform for you to have your say in an honest and safe environment!

You, members of the public and our patients, are what is most important to us and your voice is truly invaluable. We are looking for you to join us in our mission to make SWASFT the very best it can be by enrolling in our Patient Participation Panel. We want to collect your views (positive and negative) to help influence informed changes and make better the services we offer.

The meetings take place every quarter which is April, August and December, on the second Friday of the month. They’re held virtually to enable as many members as possible to represent their area, and of course you don’t have to attend every panel, so you can choose when you'd like to take part (and you don’t have to commit to the whole meeting either!)

If you have the time to donate just one hour a month to share your views with our team you would make such a difference to your local communities, to the service we provide, and the way we engage with our patients.
