Co-production fully recognizes the unique relationship and understanding staff have with customers and that harnessing their expertise to shape the future development of care provision and the design of the project is critical.
When we talk about “co-production” we need to remember it’s not just a word, nor indeed is it just a concept, when we think of co-production, we must understand it is a meeting of minds, its people coming together to find a shared solution.
