Record numbers attend 2017 Service User Event
The AAA screening programme’s fifth annual Service User Event took place on 6 April in Grosvenor Hall, Belfast. The morning workshop was attended by a record number of almost 100 participants.
More than 70 of these were service users, including many who had participated in service user events in previous years.
The event was hosted by members of the programme team, including staff from the Public Health Agency and the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust.
The programme was also delighted to welcome the Chair of the Public Health Agency, Mr Andrew Dougal.
One of the main aims of the morning was to provide an update on initiatives to develop and improve the programme, including progress on suggestions made by service users at the 2016 event.
Participants were also able to meet and share their experiences of AAA screening with fellow service users and suggest more ideas for ensuring the programme continues to meet user needs.
AAA screening staff are working through the results of these discussions as part of ongoing quality improvement efforts.
The programme team would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who were able to attend the event and help make such a valuable contribution to the ongoing development of the Northern Ireland AAA Screening Programme.
