The purpose of the group is to enable mutual engagement with a range of patients / service users / carers and members of the public, resulting in a sharing of information, views and perspectives that aims to improve patient care, informs service improvement, design and development within the Trust.
Aims to work in partnership to oversee relevant change across Trust services, as a result of learning from patients experience and feedback.
PEG members are representatives of local community and hospital user groups.What does it do?How often does it meet?

The rationale for patient, public and user involvement is that it is a pre-requisite for developing patient centred services (Tritter et al 2003).

"The development of services should be patient centred and should take account of patients, families and carers views and preferences as well as those of the professionals involved in their care and members of the public. Individuals needs and perceptions may differ from those of the professionals. Good communication and accountability between professionals, patients and their carers is especially important."
