Getting Involved

On this page:

We are engaging with clinicians, therapists, care providers, patients and others in designing a new model of care. This will be done using the experience of patients and by looking outside our area for examples from elsewhere.

A Design Group has been set up with a small group of clinicians, social care workers and patient representatives who will meet three times during March, April and May. In between their meetings, the views of wider groups of patients, staff and the public will be gathered through workshops and surveys so that the Design Group can benefit from the views or others. For more information about the Design Group look under Project Documents and Information.

This is the just one area of care that we want to improve by taking a completely new approach. Transforming care will challenge us all.

This is not an easy undertaking and we need your help to get it right.

We want to start a big conversation including people who work in local services, patients, carers and family, voluntary sector organisations and members of the public. There are several ways you can get involved:

  • Public Workshops
    There have been a number of public meetings open to patients, public and staff. Click here for the summary report from the April meeting. Click here for the summary slides from the May meeting.  Click for the Public Workshop Summary from the meeting on Friday 29 January 2016.
  • Survey
    We will be seeking views through short surveys on Health Connect. You can register by clicking here. The surveys will be short and will be open for a few weeks at a time so we can use the feedback at each stage.
    A report is available for the first survey, you can view this by clicking here.
    A report is available for the second survey, you can view this by clicking here.
