BNSSG Healthier Together

Become a Women’s Health Public Contributor


The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Integrated Care System (ICS) is working together to improve health services for women, which includes care around menopause, menstrual health and contraception. We recognised that many trans, non-binary, intersex and gender-expansive people also require this care and we are working to ensure our services are accessible and inclusive for all.

We are looking for two public contributors to join the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Women’s Health Working Group. This group will plan and oversee improvements to how services are provided. These public contributors will act as a ‘critical friend’ and come to meetings ready to share ideas and opinions, ask questions and raise any challenges or concerns.

A six-month membership of the Working Group will involve attending meetings that are:

  • monthly (on a Tuesday or Thursday afternoon)
  • two hours long
  • held in an accessible location (this may vary across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire)
  • attended by GPs, nurses, secondary care doctors, Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector representatives, Public Health specialists and academics.

This role attracts a recognition fee of £20 per hour (£40 per meeting), plus travel expenses.
