Reaching out – community engagement and health – the report

Information that follows copied fromNHS Networks News

“Building on NICE guidance on community engagement and health

This is the third in a series of publications from the IDeA’s Healthy Communities programme, this time written in conjunction with NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence). The document explores the importance of engaging communities in health promotion and health services, and the health benefits that this can bring.

It builds on the NICE guidance on community engagement and health published earlier this year. It reflects recent government commitments to engaging the public further in democratic and decision-making processes. These are outlined in the Community Empowerment White Paper, ‘Communities in Control’.

The publication is designed to stimulate thinking about community engagement in any council. It is particular relevant to those working in patient and public involvement. It should also interest community development officers, lead members for health and public health workers.”
