About

This blog features information, articles, and other content related to service user engagement within the School of Health and Social Care at the University of Essex.

This site’s primary reason is to provide health and social care students with more opportunities to learn from those who use the NHS and other health and social care services.

The content on this blog is written by members of the Service User Reference Group (SURG) and managed by the Editorial Team. The SURG comprises staff from the University of Essex and volunteers who regularly use health and social care services.

If you are interested in contributing to this blog or working with the SURG, please contact us. We’re particularly keen to let students in the School of Health and Social Care write articles on their experiences as well.
