IJB chairwoman Laura Douglas said: “The IJB has a responsibility for health and social care planning and provision within the region.

“However, the way it is delivered must be shaped by everyone – including those delivering services, the people who access them, their carers, and their families."

The Draft Participation and Engagement Strategy for 2022/25 sets out how approaches to participation and engagement are undertaken and improved over the next three years.

Ms Douglas said: “We’d strongly encourage everyone to review the current draft, and to get involved in helping to shape it into a document which will be central to our approaches over the next three years.”

Completed surveys, and any other comments, can be sent to [email protected], or posted to: Communications Team, DGHSCP, Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, Cargenbridge, Dumfries DG2 8RX.

An online event for the public to learn more about the strategy will take place on May 4.
