RedbridgeLINk was established in 2008 to give local people the opportunity to influence their health and social care services. It has been set up to make sure that local people get the health and social services they need and want, and to address health and social care inequalities.
The LINk is made up of individuals and community groups that work together to improve local services. The job of a LINk is to find out what people like and dislike about local services and work with the people that plan and run them to help make them better. This may involve talking directly to health care professionals about a service that is not being offered, or suggesting ways that an existing service could be made better.
RedbridgeLINk wants to hear about your experiences of health and social services and ideas for improvements or changes. Equally, tell us what is good too.
There are a number of benefits in becoming involved in RedbridgeLINk. These include:
The power to implement small changes and influence big ones
Getting attention for neglected issues or ideas
Influencing those that make decisions about new or existing services
Helping the community speak with a stronger local voice
Helping services provide better care
It’s up to you how and when you get involved - you can just comment on issues when contacted, or you can get more involved – by helping to raise awareness of an issue or by helping to find solutions.
