Co-production and service user involvement are crucial to the success of health care improvement, and there are lots of tools and guides out there to help this happen. So why isn’t best practice widespread?

Join National Voices for the first in a series of workshops to explore and define what good collaboration looks like between patients and people working to improve health care.

Register your interest in the event

At this first workshop, you will meet representatives from voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations who are using participation models to change relationships and outcomes with young people and people who are homeless. You will:

  • Learn what drives their approaches and what this means in practice
  • Participate in small group work to understand what gets in the way of inclusive approaches
  • Identify what you could be doing more of from now on

You’ll have a chance to connect, share and learn with patients, Q members and voluntary sector organisations. And you’ll leave with some ideas of what meaningful collaboration might look like in your team or organisation.

This workshop is part of a programme of work to explore the structures and mechanisms that need to be in place for improvement teams and patients to work better together – through a co-design process involving patients, voluntary sector organisations and health and care staff. This is delivered by National Voices, with support from the Q community.
