We worked with the Lived Experience team in NHS England to support people with experience of personalised care to develop their knowledge and skills to step into positions of peer leadership. The aim was to enable many more people to have a stronger voice in their local area, to effectively collaborate with the system and drive change, and ultimately improve the experience of personalised care for others.
We partnered with them to co-design a new remote learning and support offer, and are working with a number of contexts across the country to explore:
- How they can practically support peer leaders to take action within local and regional health and care systems to undertake strategic co-production
- How they might develop the skills and capabilities within local areas to grow and facilitate strategic coproduction on an ongoing basis
