PPP forum rules of use

Be kind and courteous

We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment where we can work together to find solutions and make improvements. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

No hate speech or bullying

Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity won’t be tolerated.

Respect everyone’s privacy

Authentic, expressive discussions make forums great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.

This page was set up following co-production sessions with PPP members, please can we ask if you have any feedback to send this via patient.panel@nwas.nhs.uk

Acronym log

We know what it’s like working in the NHS, there are a lot of abbreviations and acronyms that we sometimes struggle with!

PPP member, Joe Loughran along with other members of the Influence level have highlighted the number of abbreviations used internally and Joe has worked hard to create a more detailed acronym list in addition to the one we provided at your induction.

You can find the acronyms list on our website.
