The System Leadership team is working with Otsuka Health Solutions on a project called Joining the Dots. The project aims to enable staff and service users to work together, on computer tools, to make better use of data and information and to co-produce important aspects of their care plans.
Work on the design of this project will continue over the coming months. Service user and carer input into this project is essential to make this project a success.
Service users and carers are now being recruited onto the team. The project will run to the end of March 2016.
The project contains four project groups for which we will be seeking members. Project group members will be paid an allowance for their time of £12.00 per hour plus reasonable travel expenses (in line with AWP expenses policy).
For: Someone who is either a current service user (patient) or carer for someone who uses Bristol Mental Health services, or has been a service user or carer within the last 18 months.
Meetings: Will be held monthly, on weekday afternoons, lasting 2 hours.
How to apply: Please email email@example.com or telephone Tracy Clack on 0117 354 6202 to request an application pack, check eligibility, or for any other questions.
About the process: At the present time there will be no closing date for recruiting into these roles. Instead we will be undertaking a rolling programme of recruitment. Please apply as soon as you are able.
After applications are received service users and carers will be invited to an informal chat in order to discuss the roles. This will be followed by a decision being made on the candidate’s suitability. Please note that there will be a service user or carer on the interview panel.
Both successful and unsuccessful candidates will be given feedback (if wanted) on their applications, within 3 days of the interview.
We would like to start gathering your views as soon as we are able so please apply as soon as you are able.
