“"In working with Life Story Network I've been hugely impressed by their expertise, professionalism and efficiency. They've been great people to have on our team."
Jack Coutts, Director, Dementia Action Liverpool
Within health and social care, people often don't have a voice or input on decisions that affect them. Big decisions are being made without stakeholder consultation. Yet, commissioners have a requirement to consult with stakeholders and service users. This process is most effective and yields the most sustainable results when done from the start and not just after a service has been commissioned.
Due to our extensive experience across health and social care, we can work with commissioners to engage people using a range of methods, right from the beginning. We have a combined wealth of expertise across health and social care; in service delivery, management, commissioning and policy. Our training programmes always follow, and teach, the INVOLVE Guidance from National Institute for Health Research.
“The authentic lived experience of individuals has to drive our plans to improve care and support. We draw immense value and benefit from the support that the Life Story Network provides to people, empowering them to share their stories, which we use to influence and drive the much needed positive change in support and services for the future”.
Warren Heppolette, Executive Lead, Strategy and System Development, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership
