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
