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 University of Manchester, the National Data Guardian, and the NHS. If selected, you will be part of a "citizens' jury" – 18 adults from across Greater Manchester who will meet online using Zoom from 13.00 to 17.30 for eight days in April 2021: from 6 to 9 April, and from 12 to 15 April. 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 new ways that patient data has been used for the Covid-19 pandemic, and whether that should be allowed to continue into the future. The jury's recommendations will be published and put forward to NHS decision-makers.

Interested in taking part?

If you are aged 18 or over and a resident of Greater Manchester for more than one year, you can apply to take part in the citizens’ jury. The project promises to be interesting, informative and you will be contributing to decisions on how health and care data is used. You must be available for all eight days and you will be paid £480 if you complete all 8 days. To apply, click the "Next" button on this page and complete the online form by midday on Monday 1 March 2021. 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 adult residents from across Greater Manchester.

We will tell you by e-mail whether you have been accepted on the citizens' jury by Friday 19 March. If you have difficulties completing the survey application form, or specific questions about the form or the project, please e-mail:

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