About The Patient & Client Council

Our vision is for a health and social care service that is shaped by patients, clients, carers and communities.

The Patient and Client Council (PCC) was established on the 1st April 2009, as a powerful, independent voice for people.

The Patient and Client Council has a Board made up of a Chair and sixteen non-executive directors, recruited from across Northern Ireland under the Public Appointments Process. The Board is responsible for setting the policy and direction for the Patient and Client Council and for monitoring progress and performance.

The Chief Executive of the Patient and Client Council is Vivian McConvey.
