This guide, produced by the Patient Information Forum, provides practical support for co-production, including planning user engagement and involving users in the production of health information. Put simply, co-production means working together with users to develop health information.

Patients have a different perspective to those working in healthcare. Co-production and involving users in the production of your health information will ensure it is relevant, easy to understand and accessible. Involving users in development can help ensure the insight you gather is fully reflected in the final product.
