The Trust's Better Care Together team are seeking current or previous service users of mental health services to join a group of other likeminded individuals to help shape future mental health services. This is part of the Better Care Together programme for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland - a partnership between all local health and social care providers to work better together to improve the health and wellbeing of our population. The Better Care Together team said: "The mental health workstream is one of the areas we are looking to improve the patient experience and we'd like your help to do this. If you can spare two days a month to go to a two hour meeting about how we make sure service users get to shape future services then we'd like to hear from you. All you need is passion and commitment to make a difference." Find out more
The Trust's Adult Mental Health Services team are looking for service users/carer representatives for the Care Programming Approach (CPA) Group. They said: "This group seeks assurance from services on standards of CPA practice. CPA is a key policy nationally and service users and carers need to be involved in ensuring that the organisation is keeping up with good practice, how it is delivered and how variations, if any, are managed." Call Dr Girish Kunigiri, Consultant Psychiatrist, Bradgate Mental Health Unit on 01162252625 or email [email protected]. The group meets every quarter. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
The Trust's Reader Panel Service is a group of lay readers that quality checks the Trust's patient information to ensure it’s understandable and doesn’t contain jargon. They are particularly looking for service users/carers with experience of Adult Mental Health and Families, Young People’s and Children’s Services. Call Di Graham on 07879115033 or email [email protected]
The Trust's Smokefree Action Team are looking for service users and carers who have a view about LPT’s smokefree strategy (the plan to go completely smokefree by the end of 2016), and particularly those who have had experience of using electronic cigarettes (ecigs). Call Louise Ross, Stop Smoking Service Manager on 07824 835 650 or email [email protected] Initially a telephone survey. Louise will call people back if they let her know (text or email) that they would like a conversation.
The Trust's Pharmacy team are looking for a one-off commitment to attend a meeting to discuss the way forward for pharmacy/medicines services within the Trust. No more than half a day max. Travel expenses paid. To find out more email Anthony Oxley, Head of Pharmacy [email protected]
The Trust's Research and Development (EPPIC project) team would like to collaborate with service users and carers to help improve the quality of LPT's research. They said: "We're still in the planning stages but we're looking for a long term commitment starting in the autumn for around 18 months (or longer if people wish to). We will train volunteers to work with staff to help design research studies because their involvement will likely increase the quality and success of research projects. We want to develop a pool of talent which staff can work with when planning research. The level of commitment will vary depending on each project." To find out more call Gail Melvin, Research Manager on 0116 2955805 or email [email protected] The EPPIC project will involve meeting with the project team and then attending some training before working with staff to plan research studies. You'll also be invited to occasional meetings and asked to review documents and keep a reflective diary. Expenses will be reimbursed, including for your time.
