How to get involved

There are a lot of different ways to get involved with the Northern Trust which will help us to develop and improve the services we deliver. Some examples would be to attend a focus group or meeting, join our user panels, and forums, and participate in patient surveys.

Examples of how people have been involved

A number of services have established service user panels, which meet regularly. Examples of these are:

  • Older Peoples Panel – ensure effective consultation with older people and to monitor the implementation of the Older People’s Strategies – ‘Adding Life to Years’ and ‘Living Well Ageing Better’.
  • Disability Consultation Panel – influence the work of the all 5 Disability Action Plan work streams, ensure implementation of regional good practice at local level and monitor the implementation of the Trust’s Disability Action Plan

For more information on the work of the Panels please click the User Groups link to the right where you will find previous minutes and the terms of reference for each panel.

If you are interested in becoming involved, we would like to hear from you.
