How does it work?
Members involved in our community are called Patient and Carer Representatives, as they represent the experience of a service from the patient’s perspective. This perspective may be from the past, present, or from directly caring for someone with this experience.
In our GM Cancer Voices Community, a lot of our work takes place using a co-production model. We have more information about this coming in our online induction module, but this means that everyone involved in our work brings their own value and insight, and we work together on an equal basis to achieve a beneficial outcome. Take a look at the video, where some of our representatives talk about what co-production means to them and its benefits.
