 A new face has joined the Trust’s People Participation (PP) Team.
 
Carole Green is the new PP Lead for Bedfordshire Community Health Services (adults services).
 
Carole has joined ELFT from her role as Head of PP for Inpatient CAMHS with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.
 
PP is a fundamental part of ELFT’s focus on continuous improvement and the team help service users and their carers have a say in how we run the trust.
 
Carole, who lives in St Neots and knows Bedfordshire well, is looking forward to meeting as many staff and service users as possible.
 
“For me, PP is absolutely essential in bringing parity between health professionals and patients so joint decision-making is the norm and not an exception,” she said.
 
“My role is to develop a culture of participation and promote and encourage involvement of patients in every aspect of their care.”
