Lived Experience Case Study (2022)

The Safer Salford Lived Experience Panel (LEP) was established in 2021 and since then has taken an active role in Salford quality improvement workstreams.

Our panel is comprised of people with experience of health and care needs, whether their own or those of a friend or relative they have cared for. Lived experience volunteers are an invaluable resource to health and social care quality improvement work. They not only bring a personal perspective of living with health needs or supporting someone in that position; they can also offer many other skills, challenges and experiences. Their perspective and experience of services is real and honest. Involvement of people with lived experience is essential in making improvements.
