How health and social care professionals can work in partnership with people in localities to codesign services.

This describes the process of inclusive working within a given locality, bringing together the following people to work in equal partnership:

  • People accessing services
  • Carers/family members
  • Practitioners from health and social care- across public, private and third sectors

IRISS (this link will take you away from our website) have provided a framework of six facilitated sessions over a 12 month period to two partnership sites, providing them with the opportunity to trial and experience new ways of working together with the following aims:

  1. Learning together – to explore similarities and differences and build common understandings of person-centred care; to develop group members’ capacity to work in a co-produced way
  2. Improving together – to deliver more person-centred care locally, using the assets of all group members to find joint and innovative solutions to meet the needs of people
  3. Sharing the learning – to support the wider workforce to develop their understanding of person-centred care and to deliver it using the approaches modelled.
