Patient and carer user groups


Working with our patients and carers

We believe that involving patients and carers helps us think about things from your point of view and  can help us improve the services we provide. We want to work in partnership with you to improve everything we do.

User groups

If you are interested in finding out more about getting involved, email Pam Talman or phone the Patient Experience Team on 01473 702 101

User groups are made up of:

  •  patients
  •  carers and families
  • representatives from voluntary and community groups
  • members of staff

User groups meet for 1-2 hours once a month or once every other month.

User group members make a commitment to attend for a minimum of one year and should have recently used or be using ESNEFT services.

Alternatively, you  may also be a representative of a voluntary or community organisation with expertise or an interest in the focus of the group.

The Trust appreciates the assistance and involvement of user group volunteers and has prepared a welcome pack which includes full details of the support available which includes travel expenses.
