Supporting public involvement and community engagement

Cover page SHC15Our report, Supporting Public Involvement and Community EngagementPDF document captures the range of activities and support which we (through our network of 14 local offices) provided in promoting and encouraging the benefits of public involvement and community engagement.

This paper provides a snapshot of those activities. It illustrates a wide variety of support which has been provided, ranging from assistance with patient surveys and specific service evaluations to supporting existing public involvement structures, through to providing training on engagement tools, approaches and systems.

The report is not intended to be an exhaustive account of all support provided to NHS Boards, but instead highlights examples of projects and activities which took place during 2014-2015.
