Transforming Participation Forum Resources – Spring event 2016

Around 60 staff and patient leaders met together for the spring meeting ofthe Transforming Participation Event held on 21st April 2016, at Durham County Cricket Ground.  Communications colleagues from the region came together with the network for the first part of the agenda. The audience heard from Richard Ashworth, Senior Insight Account Manager in the NHS England Patient and Public Participation and Insight team around plans for using data to inform service improvement. Caroline Latta, Senior Communications and Engagement Locality Manager for NHS North of England Commissioning Support then led an interactive session around the 5 year Forward View and new models of care.

One of the participants in the forum, Dr Sarah Hill, who works as part of the AHSN North East and North Cumbria Comms team, wrote a blog to provide a more detailed summary of the event.
