Join our Challenge Group

What is the Challenge Group?

Most importantly, the Challenge Group helps us to improve our services that matter most to you. 

The group is made up of 11 members who constructively challenge the Trust’s service quality and performance, influence policy and procedure development, and to ensure the Trust's decisions are in the best interests of our customers.

Our Chair of the Challenge Group, Heather Bilton, looks back at the year 2020/21,

The trust has really invested in its customer focus this year. Over the coming year the challenge group is looking forward to finding different ways for customers to get involved so that we can benefit from a wider range of voices.

Above all, it’s really rewarding to see our work shape and improve the trust’s services.



How often does the Challenge Group meet?

Every five weeks for approximately two hours. 

We hold these at a variety of times to suit all lifestyles. 

From November, you'll have the choice to meet in person or virtually using Teams.
