We’re looking for people with lived experience of Dorset’s geography, demography and diversity to join the Our Dorset Public Engagement Group (PEG).

Our Dorset is the county’s integrated care system; a partnership of local NHS organisations, councils, public services and voluntary and community partners working together to improve health and care across the county. We work closely together with people and communities across Dorset to ensure that people’s voices are heard and that there is opportunity for communities to get involved and help shape the services they use. Together, we strive to make a difference and reduce health inequalities.

The Our Dorset PEG plays a key part in this, and its role is to provide advice, guidance and challenge on public engagement that is being planned to ensure that Dorset informs and involves local people and communities in developing and delivering future health and care services.

PEG meetings are held bi-monthly with most meetings held online. Several times a year we also hold a hybrid option of both face to face and virtual, to ensure meetings are as inclusive and accessible as possible.

Anyone interested in becoming a member can find out more at the PEG’s dedicated page on the Our Dorset website and complete the expression of interest form by Wednesday 14 June 2023.

We are also seeking a chair of the Our Dorset PEG. Please fill out the expression of interest form accordingly if this is something you would be interested in.

People without online access can obtain paper copies of the information and form by calling 01202 541520.

Expressions of interest will be considered by representatives of Our Dorset partner organisations.
