Description:
The Social Inclusion Division of the Department of Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs and the HSE developed a Joint Initiative to support the involvement of disadvantaged communities and groups in the development of primary health care services at local level. The Joint Initiative aimed to support and test models of community participation in primary care with a view to informing national policy and practice. Nineteen projects were funded. They were located in community development projects, local development companies, family resource centres and community and voluntary fora and worked with a range of health service staff and primary care practitioners. Key activities supported under the Initiative included: Developing and supporting community representative infrastructure, including community health fora, to feed into PCTs/ Primary Care Networks. Conducting community needs assessments. Developing joint plans between the HSE and community groups to support community participation in PCTs and Primary Care Networks using participative methodologies.
