"By joining a PPI Forum you
can actually make a difference within your community
and the health service in general. You also get to meet
a wide range of new people and learn valuable new skills.
The Forum is listened to by the Trust and our views
and recommendations are taken seriously."
would encourage people to become involved in their local
Forums because they can make a difference. The only
knowledge I had about the health service when I started
was my own experience of it but it was a start!
I would advise anyone to take time to become informed
about your local health economy and you may be surprised
at how fascinating it all is!"
"They are important as they give the opportunity
for local people to have a voice and get involved in
the way the health service is run and with others help
shape things for the benefit of all"
