What we do
This session asks participants to share their pre-existing ideas of what is meant by public involvement.
Discussion then focuses on what this means in the context of health and social care services along with the legislation and drivers behind it.
We then explore where there are opportunities for meaningful involvement along with what this could look like for you.
From this perspective we consider what makes public involvement a useful and worthwhile thing to do.
