Healthcare Improvement Scotland – Community Engagement supports and promotes communities and health and social care organisations working together to shape services and help ensure they best meet the needs of those using them, their families and carers. Support we provide includes meeting with communities and groups to raise awareness of the spectrum of different ways people can give feedback, share views, raise concerns and use their experiences to help shape services, and of the support available to do so. We also run free Voices Scotland workshops which to help people understand the structure of health and social care and how to work together with services to identify and deliver improvements. If you would like us to come and speak to your community or group or run a workshop, please contact us at our local office.
