Co-producing quality improvements in health and social care

Co-producing quality improvements in health and social care Report front

 What was the focus of the co-production work?

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) identified that families with children and young people (CYP) with complex needs were underrepresented in parent and carer forums. It also recognised that the commissioning boards lacked a strategic overview of the requirements of this group. Due to their complex medical needs, these groups are at higher risk of poor functional status, quality of life and health outcomes. This project aimed to work with people with lived experience and their family and carers, to improve the experiences of integrated community healthcare services for those aged 0-25. A secondary aim was to use the learning from this work to produce a toolkit to bring together overarching principles of co-production with CYP.
