Stories from Community Reporters on patient information and mental health

14 Aug 2015 - 10:28 by michelle.foster

Macc, the ICR Social Licensee in Manchester asked its Community Reporters for their views on patient information. Eleven people’s views were collected and were fed into the Patient Information Forum project to develop a best practice tool kit.

Their stories found that people with long term conditions found it difficult to access trustworthy information. Also, people don’t feel they have enough information to feel confident discussing decisions about their own treatment with their doctor. Jake Kalisch, one of our community reporters, curated this content to produce this feature.
