Help us Join the Dots
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
We will be continuing to work on the design of this project over
the coming months. Service user and carer input into this
project is essential to make this project a success.
We are now recruiting service users and carers onto the
team. The project will run to the end of March 2016.

allowance for their time of £12.00 per hour plus reasonable travel
expenses (in line with AWP expenses policy).
