Why get involved?
LINks are relevant to you, your family, your community, the people you know and the groups you may be involved with.
By becoming involved you can:
- Get attention for neglected issues and ideas about Health and Adult Social care
- Influence those who make decisions about new or existing Health and Adult Social Care services – the local NHS and local Authority
- Help the community speak with a stronger local voice about its Health and Adult Social Care Services
- Help services understand how they can provide better care
How much time will it take?
It is easy to get involved and it is up to you how and when you participate.
We provide different ways for you to make your views count.
You can have your say here, or comment on issues when contacted by the LINk or you can get more involved – by raising awareness of an issue or by helping to find solutions by either meeting providers or being part of a working task group.
