Involve Fest West 202321/06/2023
This July, as part of Co-Production week, the Western Trust’s Involvement team along with HSC partners, service users and carers, as well as the community and voluntary sector are hosting Involve Fest West, a week-long celebration of involvement. The festival will celebrate and create awareness about the importance of involvement and hopes to encourage more staff, service users and carers to become engaged in involvement, particularly through core methods like co-production, whereby they can work as equal partners with HSC staff in creating resources that will change and improve the services they are using.
Involve Fest West was officially launched on Tuesday 20 June 2023 in Trust Headquarters, MDEC, Altnagelvin Hospital site. In attendance was Ruth Laird, Non- Executive Director, Western Trust; Teresa Molloy, Director Performance and Service Improvement; Neil Guckian, Chief Executive; Seamus Ward, Head of Health Improvement, Equality and Involvement; The PPI Involvement Team; Community and Voluntary representatives and Western Trust service users. Involve Fest West will celebrate and create awareness about the importance of involvement and hopes to encourage more staff, service users and carers to become engaged in involvement.
