People's Voice

What is the People's Voice?

Patients and the public - those who use and care about health and wellbeing services - have invaluable knowledge and experience which can help shape and improve local services. That is why patient and public involvement through the People's Voice is fundamental to decision-making across the region.

Through the People's Voice patients, carers, members of the public, support groups and voluntary organisations sign up to receive information about our work and to ensure that they are aware of Service Improvement opportunities that are available to be involved in. They can become members of our specialist groups, attend meetings to share views and personal experiences and be a part of building future local services across the integrated care system.

By also operating as an extensive virtual network, the People's Voice makes it easy for everyone to be heard and contribute, regardless of their work and personal commitments or circumstances. If anyone is unable to attend meetings and events in person, people can still engage in online surveys, comment on documents, publications or key issues and share their personal stories.

Help grow the people's voice

Work with us to grow the People's Voice. The more information we have from patients and public, the better placed we are to make informed decisions and improve services, health and care outcomes across Lancashire and South Cumbria.

"Spread the word, get involved and encourage people you know to do the same. Everyone is welcome - the larger our network, the more representative the People's Voice will be of our regional demographic profile and the more input we can give to shape services." Bernadette Hurst, Deputy Associate Director, North West Coast SCN.

With the help of patients, carers and the public, we are already doing a great deal:

  • Providing patient input into clinical meetings
  • Helping to proof read and sense check information leaflets
  • Working with mental health teams across Lancashire and South Cumbria to improve services
  • Proactively involved in the re-configuration of services
