Working in partnership

Side-by-Side is the name given to a partnership between the Solent Academy of Research and Improvement team and a dedicated group of individuals that give a patient and public perspective to our work. The group meet regularly to help make sure everything that the team do has a patient perspective embedded at the heart of it.

How Side-by-Side members can get involved:

Improving services

This collaboration has been extremely successful and continues to grow. InĀ 2017 Side-by-Side was instrumental in helping us to become one of the first NHS Trusts to gain the internationally recognised 'Patients Included' accreditation for our annual conference.

This accreditation is awarded to events which go the extra mile to include patients and ensure that their voice is heard and valued.

In 2016, the group were runners up in the Health Education England (Wessex) Shine Awards for 'Hearing the Patient Voice' and in 2018, they were shortlisted for an NIHR Clinical Research Network (Wessex) award for 'Excellence in Patient and Public Engagement.'
