Working together to improve our healthcare services: our service – our voice

A short animated film created by the CAMERA research team in collaboration with the Patients Association and Cumberland Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG). The film is aimed at encouraging patient to take an active role in their healthcare by identifying various ways in which they can be involved including providing individual patient feedback or joining their PPG. The film draws on research conducted by CAMERA exploring Patient and Public involvement (PPI) in medical revalidation.
