Health and social care co-production
Co-production is a fundamental part of the way that we work and, together with the Council and CCG, we organise a Health and Social Care Co-production Group.
Here we have provided a glimpse of some of what we, experts by experience, service users and carers and the Council, do to promote co-production and the difference it can make.
One thing we have all been doing since the Care Act came into place is meeting together quarterly in what has become a Health and Social Care Co-production Group.
In June we started talking about how co-production could fit with Adult Safeguarding. Rhiannon Cardillo, the Borough’s Principal Social Worker continued an earlier conversation with the group on Practice Standards and Liz Bruce, Director of Adult Social Care came along to talk with the group for about an hour.
More followed during National Co-production week, for example:
- how abstract co-production support can get
- interesting upcoming commissioning that has features likely to make it co-productive
- what happened when co-production group member Mary went to the local Community Healthcare Trust AGM.
