Service Users, Patients & Community Involvement

At Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust we belief that to improve our services and educate we need to involve the community we serve.

Equalities Advisory group – TORs 

The Equalities Advisory Group is an advisory group whose members can identify with or who have experience of, one or more of the nine protected characteristics and/or other groups who could experience inequality. 

The aim of the group is to help identify, and seek mitigations for, any potential or actual impacts that our policies or functions may have on different groups of people who could experience inequality. 

The group is involved in the monitoring and scrutiny of equality issues in relation to service development, transformation and change management programmes, the Equality Delivery System (EDS), and policy and strategy documentation.

If you are interested in being involved please contact us on

Youth Board TORs  provides a voice for young people to ensure the services we provide are effective and accessible.

We involve members of our Youth Board in both the continuing developments of existing services and when we’re designing new ones.

Youth Board members are also invited to sit on recruitment panels and ensure the wider views of young people are represented throughout everything we do. It provides an invaluable forum for the Trust, while also supporting young people to gain experience and boost their confidence.

Expert by Experience Herefordshire Programme

Your views, your influence, your experience

Experts by Experience are involved in our Trust in many different ways. We are keen to recruit more people to join our programme in Herefordshire.

Who are experts by experience?

Experts by Experience are people who have personal knowledge of our services in Herefordshire - either through their own use of those services, or through caring for someone who has.
