People and Communities Online Learning Programme

Welcome to the Public Participation team’s online learning programme.  These sessions are about working in partnership with people and communities and include a mix of webinars and workshops, hosted by the Public Participation team. The sessions are aimed at colleagues working in or with NHS organisations in engagement activity with people and communities. Others working in the public and voluntary sectors may also find our online learning beneficial and are welcome to attend.

Some sessions are aimed at people who are newer to working with people and communities, helping them to build their knowledge and their toolkit of resources and ideas. Some sessions are aimed at more experienced engagement practitioners, helping them further explore good practice and innovative approaches. Sessions focus on:Understanding how to build partnerships with people and communities

  • Reducing health inequalities through better understanding of the barriers faced by under-represented communities, and how to overcome these
  • Sharing inspiring ideas that can be put into practice, and tools and resources to support this
  • Meeting the legal duties to involve the public in the work of the NHS

Shine a Light on Co-production

The Experience and Partnerships Team at NHS England would like to invite you to our Shine a Light on Co-production Event.

This event is to shine a light on the art of the possible in relation to co-produced improvements and demonstrate what can be achieved when we work together with people with lived experience.

At each event people with lived and learnt experience share their experience of co-producing their improvement together. This will include the difference co-production made to them and their organisation,  their top tips, what went well and the challenges they faced.

For further information please send an email to england.eoccoproduction@nhs.net
