Having received the great news that Dudley had been selected as a learning site in the Building Health Partnerships programme, we then had the difficult task of putting together a short invitation list of people to be involved in the development sessions. It’s not easy to do this, as of course we wanted everyone to have the opportunity to be involved!
Dudley CVS, Dudley CCG and Dudley MBC were each asked to put forward between 5 and 10 names. Dudley CCG were asked to invite colleagues from across the NHS, and Dudley CVS identified a number of people from voluntary organisations. community groups and social enterprises. We tried to achieve a balance of organisations who have been commissioned or contracted to deliver services and a few who hadn’t. The who is involved page contains a full list of all invitees. Not everyone on the list has been able to get involved. Notes from the sessions include participant lists.
