Co-producing healthy communities: the first steps (a report from Ely, Cardiff)

This report summarises the findings of a health design event run by Action Caerau Ely and Spice to engage community members in Ely, Cardiff, in the design of a healthy community. People shared their thoughts, feelings and ideas about things that they feel affect their health, barriers to accessing health related services and activities and ideas for improvements or innovations around the delivery of health services. Many of these are things which the community felt they can lead or play an active role in delivering. Since this event community members have become involved in a number of health initiatives including with working with the NHS to design a new NHS direct phone line service for Wales.
