Co-Pro Week 2024


Unheard Voices, Untapped Potential

1st July - 5th July

Co-production is about working in equal partnership with people who use services, their carers, families, and our communities. Co-production offers the chance to transform healthcare provision into a model that offers people real choice and control.

National Co-Production Week (#CoProWeek) celebrates the benefits of co-production and the sharing of good practices. It promotes the contribution of people who access healthcare in developing better service provision. 


In the Academy, we try to ensure that all of our work is co-produced, which is a fundamental component of our training and facilitation. Over the past year, our Side by Side network have developed and run a dedicated Co-Production for Improvement course which supports teams working in partnership on projects in services. This is being further developed over 2024 and we are particularly focusing on the need to go beyond familiar voices and increase equity and diversity in co-production.


Tell Us About Great Work

There are already great examples of work out there, so to celebrate these and share learning, we’d love to hear from you about the co-production you are involved in. If you have experience or know of people or community partners who have worked to co-produce changes, please let us know in the short form below. 


Nominate someone who should be recognised for co-production and working in partnership – all those nominated will receive a gift from Side-by-Side.

This form has now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part. Those who have been nominated will receive their gift very soon!

Our Patients, their Thoughts


The value of co-production is in bringing people together to shape services, and making sure that everyone has a chance to part of making a difference

Co-production is a real opportunity to design and deliver healthcare and services that people want and need, not what we think they want and need
