Event description

Description

This course is aimed at members of the public (carers, patients, volunteers) and Council and NHS staff who work in the community and are interested in shaping service improvement.

This training session looks at the importance of the structure of the NHS and its East Lothian Council partner and how responsibilities are broken down and shared.

The NHS and local council care services are now working jointly under one partnership arrangement; both are responsible for the health and social care needs of our communities.

How do individuals navigate their way through the changing landscape?

The course will also consider levels of involvement, the importance of public involvement, influencing styles, the best routes for engagement and an introduction to a new local engagement guide.
