The Personalised Care Team and Co-production Working Group have produced this guide to support all those in Tameside and Glossop who want to implement co-production into their health and social care services.

I don’t want a seat at your table: co-production in mental health services

There has been a decades-long movement to increase what gets called lived experience, service user, or patient involvement in the design and delivery of mental health services, programmes, projects, and research. There are now many groups and activists working in a range of ways and contexts to bring much-needed lived experience perspectives to spaces dominated by those positioned as “professionals”. A big pull, I think, for those who want to “do” involvement and co-production, is the hope that things may change for the better for other people who experience mental ill-health, distress and trauma.

Why I never use the word ‘coproduction’ with young people

Associate, Jon Ralphs works as a supporter on our Time to Talk Next Steps (TtTNS) programme. Young people are involved in all aspects of project delivery. In this blog Jon talks about their work as a group to develop the Training Squad, an exciting new project to deliver training for practitioners.

Removing barriers to shared decision making

The Patients Association and the Patient Information Forum (PIF) worked with NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) to look at ways of making it easier for patients to take part in shared decision-making.

Sharing stories

This resource was co-created in response to asking which stories provide the most impactful messages and where are the best places to share them.
