Co Production

What is Co-production?

Co-production means making together.

It is based on the idea that the people who use services are the best people to design them.

When co-production happens all the people involved in a service share power.

Co-production in the Learning Disability Service

In the Involvement team we employ people with a learning disability.

They use their experience of healthcare services, to help to make our services better.

We work as a team of co-workers.

This means people with a learning disability and people without working with each other as equals

What we do

  • Make accessible information
  • Host workshops
  • Do research with other service users
  • Co-chair or be involved in meetings to improve services.
  • Give presentations
