Patient and carer involvement in NELFT

We firmly believe that people who use our services and those that support them have a key role in helping us improve the services we currently provide and in helping shape the design and delivery of future services.

NELFT offers a range of opportunities for those who use their community health and /or mental health services, including child health services, to share their views, ideas and expertise.

As an involvement representative you could be involved in:

  • membership of your local patient experience partnership group
  • staff recruitment
  • serving on committees and working groups
  • supporting service development
  • monitoring the quality of services
  • consultation on Trust policies
  • making sure information for patients and carers is clear
