Co-production week celebration 2021

Slough Co-production Network celebrated with a virtual open event to showcase our approach in Slough. We were really pleased that 60 people attended our event.

Since the launch in March 2019, the Co-production Network has become a strong and vibrant group. We shared what co-production means to us both as a network and within in local Mental Health services. People shared their personal experiences about how their contributions have had a positive influence and impact on local health and social care services. There were many positive comments about the event and the service.

If you have with direct experience of health and care services and want to work as part of a team to help find shared solutions for the wider community please join us! If you have any questions or want to learn more about Slough co-production network, please email BeInvolved@slough.gov.uk.
