Tuesday 7th July / 2:00pm – 3:30pm / Register here!

People’s Voice Media have teamed-up with the National Co-Production Advisory Group to facilitate this interactive knowledge exchange as part of #NationalCoproductionWeek.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve been collaborating and using Community Reporting – a pan-European storytelling movement – to gather people’s lived experiences of health and social care from across the country. A key purpose of this work has been to better understand, at a human level, how people experience different health and care services, what it is like to work in this arena, what works well and what doesn’t. These stories have shown us that we need to ‘rehumanise’ services and put heart-led practice at the centre. We must step out from behind the spreadsheet and connect with others at an emotional level in order to move forward.

As part of this workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

1. Listen to some of the stories we have gathered and hear direct accounts of people’s experiences of health and social care

2. Explore how you can use some of the learnings from the stories in your own context 

3. Discuss how what ‘rehumanising the system’ looks like at a practical level and how you can contribute to this (r)evolution!

Following this knowledge exchange, we will be coproducing a policy briefing about the rehumanisation of services – drawing on the stories in this workshop and other lived experiences from different types of services from across Europe. We’ll be incorporating the ideas you share with us as part of this workshop into this later in the year!
