Summary of report contentHealthwatch West Sussex created this quarterly report to provide feedback to both the commissioners and to the Mental Health Alliances’ Steering Groups about the introduction of six People with Lived Experience (PLE) to give their perspective and assist in their development. This report was produced collaboratively with the six people with lived experience using their supervision and feedback as part of their role in the Mental Health Alliances, to provide and manage a service to support the delivery of an impartial, lived experience perspective to the Alliance Steering Groups. The report looks at what is working well with the PLE's in the groups, what challenges there are in getting their voice heard, what has been learned from the experience of getting these PLE's onto these groups and what to expect looking forward. The report does not contain any recommendations.
