Patient Engagement

 

Ashfield Voluntary Action also works in partnership with NHS Mansfield and Ashfield Clinical Commissioning Group (MACCG). This is the part of the NHS which is responsible for planning and paying for healthcare services in Mansfield and Ashfield.

 

We support the work of MACCG around patient engagement. As they want to ensure that they involve patients when developing and delivering health services so that services have the best opportunity of effectively meeting the needs of all patients.

 

Ashfield Voluntary Action works closely with MACCG bringing our contacts with the wider community and local knowledege to help them to capture the patient voice -ensuring that they have input into the provision of healthcare.

 

Some patient groups may be at risk of encountering additional barriers whilst accessing health services (for example people who are: homeless, have experienced domestic abuse, have mental health difficulties, or have other factors in their lives which can mean that they find it more difficult to access the health services they need). It is particularly important that their views are also reflected otherwise there is a risk that they may not access the services they need. 

 

As an infrastructure organisation supporting other voluntary and community groups in the District, Ashfield Voluntary Action is well-placed to work in partnership with community and voluntary groups. This provides the opportunity for seldom heard groups to be included when new services are being developed. 

 

Ashfield Voluntary Action also provides wide-ranging support to Patient Participation Groups. To find out more about our work to support patient groups click here.

 

Ashfield Voluntary Action also works to support health groups, self-help groups and attends health events and promotions. Our work is to help improve the lines of communication between health service and patient.
