Pocket case studies on user and community
co-production from the Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership

As part of the Co-Production Star Action Learning Programme, the Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership has started mapping co-production activities in the four Localities. The pocket case studies highlight how the partner organisations have gone about co-commissioning, co-designing, co-delivering and co-assessing public services and outcomes with service users and local communities in Aberdeen. We’re now building on these existing co-production approaches in a number of Co-Production Labs at locality level, with the aim of improving high priority public outcomes through new forms of user and community co-production.

So if you’re looking for co-produced solutions which can improve health and wellbeing, have a look at these pocket case studies and learn from the good practices which have already been developed in the Aberdeen City Health and Social Partnership. Governance International is grateful to all the authors for sharing their experience in these co-production pocket case studies.
