The Equal Partners Strategy highlights our commitment to working with staff, service users, patients, carers, general public and other partners to plan, shape, develop and deliver our services.
Only by informing, listening, consulting, and involving can we truly empowerpeople and ensure that our services are of high quality, and meet the needs of the population.
