Decision Making Processes
The Local Advisory Committee and staff make collaborative decisions about our work programme and priority areas. These include decisions such as which research studies and Enter & View visits to undertake each year.
Our decision making takes into account a number of factors including:
- issues identified from community feedback and intelligence
- understanding the views of under-represented groups e.g children and young people
- opportunities to make an impact
- alignment with the key priorities of our local authority and NHS partners
- gaps in our current insight and knowledge on an issue/service
- having a balanced work programme with consideration given to both health and social care issues
- wider strategic drivers
Our Local Advisory Committee seek to provide full transparency in their decision making. Minutes of meetings can be requested by emailing email@example.com
Each year we will update the website to highlight our key projects and reasons for choosing these priority areas. Please click on the pink 'Find out more' button below to access information about our current projects.
