II.1.4)Short description:

 

This contract is being issued as a light touch contract

Local Healthwatch (LHW) is at the heart of a health and care service that is centred on patients and users. Local Healthwatch will gather people’s views on, and experiences of, the health and social care system. In this way, community views will have real influence with those who commission and on those who provide services, about what users, carers and citizens need and want from them. This can help them to be more responsive to what matters to service users and the public and enable them to design services around their needs.

Knowsley older people’s involvement programme will be responsible for promoting and enabling the engagement and the active involvement of older people (aged 55 years and over) in Knowsley with local agency partners and stakeholders to carry out the activities.

The partnership public engagement facilitation and support service is required to coordinate the Knowsley engagement forum and facilitate effective public engagement and involvement activities to support the Knowsley strategic board and health and wellbeing board.
