Working with patients and the public

We are working extensively with patients and the public to inform future service delivery and ensure the care we provide is designed by our users for our users.

Patient and public involvement in our work is already leading to safer administration of medicines, greater data sharing across our healthcare community and lives being saved through participation in projects to prevent atrial fibrillation related strokes and cerebral palsy in children.

Our work with patients and the public:

  • 3 major projects have benefitted from direct involvement of our public contributors in the last year
  • 750 strokes could be prevented through uptake of our new atrial fibrillation patient programme
  • 64 mothers given magnesium sulphate treatment to offer neuro protection for their babies against cerebral palsy
  • 31 members of the public attended our patient safety events
