Would you like to be paid to take part in a citizens’ jury?

Citizens Juries CIC, a not-for-profit company, is inviting applications from members of the public to take part in an exciting project commissioned by the NHS in Gloucestershire. If selected, you will be part of a "citizens' jury" – 18 adults who will meet online using Zoom from 13.00 to 17.30 for eight days in January 2021: from 19 to 22 January, and from 25 to 28 January. We will be able to help people unused to online video-conferencing or who have difficulty accessing a computer.

The jury will be given relevant information, and work together to answer important questions about the public consultation currently being carried out on how specialist NHS hospital services should be organised between Gloucester Royal and Cheltenham Hospitals. The "Fit for the Future" consultation information can be found here. The recommendations of the jury (such as what the jury considers to be the most important public consultation findings) will be put to the governing bodies of the NHS in Gloucestershire to inform their decisions about changes to hospital services. 

Interested in taking part?

If you are aged 18 or over and a resident of Gloucestershire for more than one year, and do not work as a healthcare professional, you can apply to take part in the citizens’ jury. The project promises to be interesting, informative and you will be contributing to how local hospital services will be organised. You must be available for all eight days and you will be paid £480. To apply, click the "Next" button on this page and complete the online form by midday on Wednesday 9 December 2020. It takes about 5 minutes to complete.

Please do not send an accompanying email or CV; shortlisting will be done using the online survey applications alone. No special skills, education or experience needed. We aim to select a cross-section of Gloucestershire adult residents.

We will tell you by e-mail whether you have been accepted on the citizens' jury by Wednesday 23 December. If you have difficulties completing the survey application form, or specific questions about the form or the project, please e-mail: info@citizensjuries.org.

We explain why we collect information from you on this form as you fill it in.
