Integration Joint Board Participation & Engagement Strategy & Action Plan
The Integration Joint Board (IJB) believes that increasing wellbeing and reducing health inequalities depends on patients, carers, other service-users, groups, staff and partners being kept up-to-date on service developments and being able to influence changes to services.
The Participation and Engagement Strategy, approved by the IJB on 31 January 2017, sets out the IJB's long-term commitment to effective participation and engagement.
The strategy is designed to help health and social care officers plan community engagement and to show communities and staff what they can reasonably expect from the IJB in terms of being kept informed and being able to make their views known.
The strategy is accompanied by an annual action plan which details the participation and engagement planned by the IJB in the current year.
