The Involvement Team listens to people’s experiences of health care to make services better for people with a learning disability.


What is Co-production?

Co-production 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 – “we are all experts in different ways”.


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.
