Involvement and consultation
Several groups that encourage older people to become involved in specific issues such as influencing health and social care policies. Perhaps you were involved in health and social care during your working life, or maybe you are just interested in trying to make these services better. As an older person you can see directly how services affect older people and your views are very important. If you think that you have something to contribute think about joining an involvement group.
Leeds Older People’s Forum and Leeds Involvement Project are a good place to start if you want to get involved. If you are interested in Leeds’ health services you can also get in touch with Patient Involvement on 0113 206 6785.
