“NHS Citizen is a national programme to give the public a say on healthcare matters and influence NHS England decision-making. […] NHS England has commissioned four organisations to manage the NHS Citizen design process: The Tavistock Institute, Involve, The Democratic Society and Public-i. […] All four organisations are responsible for the delivery, engagement and operation of this website and the other project resources we’re developing, but are directly funded by – and answerable to – NHS England.”

It was initiated by government, designers & developers, non-governmental organisation/charity and researchers and encourages people to participate through an online platform, a public assembly and special events. NHS Citizen is national in orientation and concerned with health, democracy, politics and representation and participation.

It was launched in 2013 and is ongoing.
