New Patient Involvement group" at The Peaks Rampton
New Patient Involvement group at The Peaks, Rampton Hospital
All stakeholders met over two sessions and discussed how best they could work together to bring about a new involvement meeting for patients. Involvement meetings are run by patients and staff. Over the period of a few months attendance at the previous involvement meetings had been low and all parties wanted to come together to see how this could be improved on.
The main aim of involvement meeting is exactly what it sounds like involving patients, staff, and stakeholders in delivering the best care possible for patients....
On the first session patients were split up into three groups with volunteers from the involvement centre. Using flipcharts and pens came up with ideas about how the new group should run and the format itself and also how to increase patient numbers at the meeting....
The meeting to be patient lead and chaired by a patient who would be supported by staff.
The group were very enthusiastic about the new plans, feeding back, reviewing care, guest speakers, linking to the main hospital patients Council, and the main thing being that they take ownership of the meeting themselves.
