Moray Public Empowerment Group

  • VO85040


Description

NHS Grampian is launching an exciting new initiative for the people of Moray to get involved in. The 'Public Empowerment Group' (PEG) is a forum where local people can have a say about how health and social care services will be delivered in the future as part of the Dr Gray’s Hospital Transformation Programme and Operation Home First. The PEG will also help to ensure that any information about new models of health and social care is given in ways that everyone can understand and access. The group is open to anyone aged 16+ with recent personal experience of health and social care in Moray, whether they are themselves a service user or support someone who accesses those services. The group welcomes participants from all walks of life and backgrounds.

Organisation aims and objectives

The Network is a group of patients, carers and the general public who are particularly interested in health services across Grampian. Members of the Network work in partnership with clinical staff and managers as a large group and sometimes as individuals on working groups and committees. Much of the Forum's work is associated with issues that impact on the whole of Grampian. The work can involve participating in working groups or discussion sessions, completing questionnaires and other methods that we are using to actively involve the general public, carers and patients in helping develop a local health service.

Restrictions

Experience required: PEG members will be influencing the sustainable design and decision-making on a range of health and social care services. Members should have an interest in improving patient and service user experience, with a good understanding of their community’s needs and a willingness to contribute constructively in meetings.
