Very excited session Thanks

This was a really interesting presentation. I work as part of a team in a mental health trust who teach medical students and physician associate students and it is a barrier we come up against regularly both with staff and service users that no-one knows what a PA is. They are incredibly valuable in mental health care.

I'm looking forward to catching up with all these presentations during on study leave from clinical work next week. Hope we might get a bit of discussion going and please feel free to post any comments / feedback on my presentation. Looks like a really interesting session!

Thanks Charlotte, a really interesting presentation! Suggests engagement might be more effective when there is a specific (if narrow) purpose to it and when stakeholders have a clearly defined and communicated role in development of products.

Thanks for a very interesting talk Bec. When these out of hours services are talked about in the media, they are seen as offering an extended service for people who cannot make weekday appointments. Did this aspect feature in what your respondents had to say? The service seems to have been more about offering MORE appointments rather than at different times of the day.
