Acute Co-Production Partnership – Building Essential Services Together

A survey to assess existing personal and public involvement in the Acute Services of Northern Health and Social Care Trust and for the collation of contact details of interested parties.


Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) is the active and effective involvement of service users, carers and the public in Health and Social Care (HSC) services.

Privacy Statement - Your information provided in this survey will be held in a secure database and used to facilitate your involvement and customise requests to your particular interests.  Your information will be held for between 1-3 years (as determined by you).  You can withdraw your information from the database at anytime.  The data can only be accessed by the Acute Personal and Public Involvement Manager - Ashley Steele.  Your contact details will only be shared with your prior consent.

Why We Are Consulting

The Acute Divisions of Northern Health and Social Care Trust are committed to personal and public involvement in the development and improvement of services. 

The purpose of this survey is to build an understanding of the existing levels of involvement and to collate a list of individuals and organisations who would be interested in contributing to the design and implementation of services.

The survey seeks individuals who are interested providing their views on services, participating in the Acute Co-production Partnership and/or in undertaking a training programme to become an expert patient.  The expert patients will become active members of project and service teams.

‘Co-Production’ involves bridging the gap between patients, the community and voluntary sector and the Northern Trust in order to  share knowledge and better meet the needs of patients.

What Happens Next

All participants in the survey are invited to attend the Acute Co-Production Partnership Launch Event which will take place on Monday 10 September 2018 at 7:00 pm in the Lecture Theatre, MDEC, Causeway Hospital.

A verbal report of the progress of the survey to date will be provided at this meeting.  Reports will be subsequently added to the Northern HSC Trust Internet Site.
