How can you get involved?

Patient, public and carer involvement.

We would like to know about your experience of using our healthcare services. You can find all the different ways to give us your feedback on this page.

We have a team dedicated to recruiting and supporting patients and carers to work directly with our services to co-design, develop and improve the work we do.

As a participation partner, you will have the opportunity to take part in:

  • attending and co-designing engagement and governance groups
  • interview panels
  • focus groups
  • co-designing and delivering training
  • designing patient information
  • quality improvement projects
  • We Care and PLACE visits
  • and much more.

Anyone who joins us as a participation partner can join our People’s Network, which holds regular meetings to share news and receive information from our services and partner organisations. You can find out more about what we do in the Participation Matters newsletters linked on this page.
