We are keen to ensure that the patients and family /carers are represented and heard at all stages of service development from design, delivery to monitoring of services and that all services have a patient group to refer to. We have developed a model of working with NHS Trusts, GP practices and other health and social care organisations, including universities and colleges to assist with patient involvement – we have a Patient Participation Information and Support Pack and Guidelines: Please see our PPG section on the website here.
We also developed a Working Together Guide with Plymouth University to provide some tips on how better to involve patients as equal partners in the spirit of true ‘co-production”. click here
If you would like help to develop or support your patients group or ideas about how better to involve wider numbers and types of patients please contact email@example.com or phone 07872633189
