Arthritis Care in Central England is building relationships with local Patient and Public Involvement Forums, supporting local people to become involved with the planning of healthcare services within their area.
After a campaign in the area covered by the Trent Strategic Health Authority, increased resources for paediatric rheumatology services have enabled the service to continue.
The campaign, co-ordinated by Arthritis Care, involved parents and young people with rheumatoid diseases contacting their MPs, local primary care trusts (PCTs) and TrentCOM, the commissioning body for specialist services in Trent Strategic Health Authority.
Chris Pheaker from TrentCOM expressed surprise at the number of responses he had received from parents, young people and MPs about this service.
He was pleased that everyone was happy with the service that Dr Venning, the only consultant in this specialty, offers, and realised that plans needed to be made to secure the long-term future of this service.
