Our vision is to give everyone a voice about how public health and social care services are designed and delivered. 

We are working to gather the best evidence and the widest range of views, especially those from minority groups, ethnic minority groups, people living with disabilities, older people, and younger people. 

To ensure that we have the best evidence, the widest range of views, and genuine insights from all areas of our community, we carry out a wide range of research, engagement, and facilitation work. 

We work collaboratively with service providers, community leaders, and our local councils to carry out service assessments, user-group facilitation, patient participation, focus groups, and online surveys. All with the support of our dedicated volunteers and members. 

How we do it: 

  • By designing engagement projects 

  • Working with grassroots community groups and charities 

  • Community outreach sessions 

  • From people contacting us either by phone, email, social media or through our website 

  • Local / National Reports and research 

  • Our volunteers and their networks 

  • Enter & View Assessment to assess the quality of care being delivered by care homes 

This typically leads to more: 

  • Research projects 

  • Community visits and events 

  • Targeted Listening Events 

  • Surveys 

  • Enter and View Visits 

This means we can: 

  • Inform service development 

  • Share best practice 

  • Identify gaps in service provision 

  • Improve service quality 

  • Make sure patients are aware of their rights 

  • Hold decision makers accountable to the public 

On this occasion we would like to find out what health and social care issues are important to you.  

We'd like your views to help us plan and shape our annual priorities for April 2022 - March 2023.
