Involvement and Co-Production Awareness Training
The Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) Team is offering classroom based awareness training on an Introduction to Personal and Public Involvement and Co-Production from January to March 2020. This training is targeted at all Trust staff. The aim of the course is to give those in attendance the knowledge and skills to use PPI and Co-Production models at all levels of service improvement. Involvement is a statutory obligation for all staff carrying out any change to an existing service or planning to develop a new service. Click here to read more.
