M2 Area in Planning

At B+A we recognise that health and care are both about prevention and wellbeing whilst delivering the best safe, effective and person-centred care where intervention is required.  

We use a variety of approaches to capture patient experience, solicit ideas and facilitate participation in the healthcare planning process.

We recommend that patient and public representatives who have had direct experience or exposure to specific service and treatment pathways participate in meetings, workshops, or focus groups at key points in a programme, together with our team and client stakeholders. 

It is also crucial to involve ‘independent’ public representatives who come from a fresh standpoint e.g. a younger person's perspective and those able to provide a technology or digital viewpoint.
