Keeping the community engaged and informed
Central to the success of the Renfrewshire Development Programme is effective and two way engagement with our patients and their representatives and other partners such as the third sector and the Scottish Ambulance Service.
To launch the RDP a major event was held in Paisley. More than 160 people and key groups attended including patient and public representatives, staff from the RAH, community healthcare teams, GP practices, Renfrewshire Council, allied health practitioners, mental health care staff, pharmacy staff, the Scottish Ambulance Service, third sector and NHS 24.
The event was to both inform our stakeholders and to get their views on current service provision in Paisley and on what the most effective areas for change could be.
All of the information gathered from the event has been used to shape the work of the programme and the services that have now been put in place.
Throughout the programme we will continue to work closely with Engage Renfrewshire - a single point of access for community action, volunteering and social enterprise in Renfrewshire - to ensure that our patients and the wider community can learn more about our work and feedback their views.
