School of Health Sciences: Public engagement recruitment event

  • Start Date: June 9, 2017 at 11:00 am
  • End Date: June 9, 2017 at 3:00 pm
  • Location: Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service, 7 Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG1 3FB

The School of Health Sciences would like to learn from your experiences in order to help in the education of healthcare workers. It doesn’t matter if the care has been for you, or someone you have cared for.

Do you have experience of living with a condition, or have you received treatment in hospital or the community?

We are interested in working with:

  • Anyone with lived experience of ill health, disability, caring, and/or mental health difficulties
  • Anyone who has experience of treatment from physiotherapists, nurses or midwives
  • Anyone who has a child who has received treatment
  • Anyone who has received in-hospital or outpatient care
  • People with learning disabilities who would like to share their experiences
  • People already on other Patient forums or groups
  • Carers or Carer groups
  • Existing patient participation groups in Hospital Trusts
  • Existing PPI groups in other organisations

We are holding an information event to tell you more about how you can help us and our students learn more about your life experiences.

By working with us you will help the health professionals of the future to better understand the impact of their work and their relationship with the communities they care for. We recognise that your time and experience is valuable to us, so we will pay you for the time you spend working with us.

Come and find out more and if you think you can help.

This event runs from 11am – 3pm and lunch will be provided. Booking is preferred, so please call us on 0115 823 0800.

Will sign language interpreters be available at this event? Some members of the local Deaf community may wish to attend and get involved.
Many thanks

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your query.

There will not be a sign language interpreter as a matter of course but if the team is made aware of any deaf or hearing impaired attendees in advance of the event then they will endeavour to provide an interpreter.
