Involving You

Personal and Public Involvement

Central to all planning and service developments in the Trust is a commitment to partnership, working with service users, with staff, with staff side organisations and professional bodies and with our communities, to ensure that the services we offer are reflective of the needs of the communities we serve.  Ongoing discussion between the Trust and interested individuals or groups is an important part of decision making and this is reflected in our Public and Personal Involvement (PPI) Strategy.
