The Scottish Medicines Consortium have asked us to bring the following initiative to your attention. This is a good opportunity to have your voice heard.
We would like to invite you to take part in ‘What matters to you? day being held on 6 June 2017.
Last year, ‘What matters to you?’ day was a great success with more than 520 health and social care teams across Scotland making a special effort to have more person-centred conversations with the people they work with. In addition to this, more than 100 teams from 13 countries joined our Scottish initiative so we welcome involvement from other parts of the UK and beyond.
This campaign encourages supportive conversations between people who provide health and social care and the people and families who need and use it. It’s about understanding what matters in our lives to keep us healthy, happy and connected to the things that are important to us, such as family and community.
The aim this year is not only to encourage and support more meaningful conversations, but also to focus on the action that needs to happen in response to these conversations to deliver the care and support people really need and want.
To take part in ‘What matters to you?’ day, register as an individual or as a team at http://www.whatmatterstoyou.scot/and ask this question of your team members and colleagues.
We would like to encourage you to send us your pictures or descriptions of what you did for the day and the action you took following the response via:
person-centred health and care team email firstname.lastname@example.org
tweet using #wmty17, or
‘What matters to you?’ website.
We would not only like you to get involved in ‘What matters to you?’ day, but also to share this invite and attached flyer with your networks to encourage them to get involved.
If you have any questions at all about ‘What matters to you?’ day, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team on the email address above.
