In November we completed our first set of all three workshops, in snowy Leeds. The NHS Team in Leeds have been incredibly committed to Co-Pact and have really put their all in to recruiting for the project. This means we now have our first batch of data to upload and we can start thinking about analysis. It’s exciting to start thinking and planning for the next stage of the study.


We have our introductory workshop in Birmingham on Friday 3rd December. This means we will have run introductory workshops in Leeds, Derby, Bradford, Manchester and Birmingham. We are on track to complete all three workshops in each of these sites before Christmas. After Christmas we will be running workshops in Oxford, London and Lancashire.


We have also held the first Staff photovoice workshop and are looking forward to receiving their images and captions. We are also going to be running more staff workshops in January. If you are interested in taking part or know someone who might be, please email:


The first CHiMES webinar will be held on 8th December at 10-11 on Zoom.
