Regional Guidance on Service User and Carer Remuneration

20th September 2022

A lot of work has taken place across the Health and Social Care system (HSC) system to develop a clear, consistent structure as to how and when Service Users and Carers are remunerated for their input in the development of new or ongoing services, policies and strategies within HSC.

Regional guidance and procedures on Recognition Payments for Service Users and Carers working with HSC has been developed in partnership by the Patient and Client Council, Personal and Public Involvement (PPI) Team in the Public Health Agency and through extensive consultation with service users, carers, stakeholders and HSC staff.

We would like to hear from you on what you think about the draft regional guidance for the recognition of payments- can you understand it, is it user-friendly? We will host two focus groups through zoom on Monday 3rd October at:

  • 10:00am-11:00am
  • 1:00pm-2:00pm

If you would like to register for this event please contact Laura O’Neill at Laura.O’ or on 028 95362844 before 5pm on Friday 30th September
