The first Creative Co-production Forum took place on Monday 18 June 2018 at Chase Farm. BEH-MHT staff including those working in early intervention, forensic services and The Network met to talk all things co production.
The group heard a presentation from Camilla Cox in the Eating Disorders Service who explained how a former patient feedback group became a Peer Support Group. The case study helped to illustrate the broader movement away from simply asking for feedback to working with users of services to design and deliver the services that they want – true co-production in action!
Rebecca Sare from their charity partner Inclusion Barnet and Trust Wide enablement lead Helen Price then facilitated a wide-ranging discussion. BEH-MHT staff started by looking at some definitions of co-production, considered where it is already happening across the trust – including in Forensics at the Clarendon Recovery College – and discussed some of the challenges to moving towards greater co-production.
