The Local Involvement Network for Devon is holding three events around Devon to enable people to identify key points and priorities for meaningful engagement. Taking place in late February, LINk Devon hopes these events will help Clinical Commissioning Groups and other decision making bodies understand what people think is important about good engagement.
A sub group of LINk Devon’s leadership group has been looking at Patient Participation Groups in GP surgeries and consulting with practice managers and public involvement professionals to build a picture of involvement in the NHS.
LINk Devon would like to find out more about what people’s views are on how engagement and involvement could be carried out and influence the early development of NEW Devon’s “Meaningful Engagement and Purposeful Communications” Strategy. The three focus events in Exeter, Ivybridge and Barnstaple are aimed at people who know and care about the services offered in their local area. Patients, public and professional staff will have a chance to work together to plan and prioritise their ideas for development of patient and public engagement in Devon.
