Posted on the 27th July 2015

Do you want to play an important part in someone’s road to a healthy recovery? By signing up to Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s reader panel you can help to ensure that service user and carer information is of the highest quality!

Your insight and opinions can play an important role in the development of patient information leaflets, booklets and other printed materials for the Trust. This is a great opportunity to get involved in improving the Lancashire community, helping others and being involved in an important aspect of the Trust’s care. It may also be a great opportunity for you to gain editorial experience!

Dee Roach, Director of Nursing, Quality and Governance at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust said:

“It’s vital that the content we print is understandable, clear and concise so that important messages are not lost. Joining our Reader Panel provides an invaluable perspective and will ensure that the information we provide to service users, their carers and family regarding the services and care we provide will be the best it can be to help aid recovery.

 “Whether you are a current service user, or you have been in the past, if you have clinical or editorial experience or you are simply interested in ensuring high quality care, your insight would be extremely valuable in offering advice on the information the Trust is producing.”

Lancashire Care provides health and wellbeing services across the county including sexual health, respiratory, health improvement, mental health, memory assessment, eating disorder as well as offender healthcare. You can get involved in as many or as few areas as you like!

To find out what areas you can get involved in, for further information or to sign up, please call 01772 695384 or email communications@lancashirecare.nhs.uk.  Electronic copies of the publications will be sent to you via email or hard copies can be posted upon request.
