The HSE Patient and Public Partnership Conference 2023


Thursday 12 October

The Convention Centre Dublin
Spencer Dock, North Wall Quay, North Dock, Dublin 1


The HSE National Patient and Service User Forum have come together with the HSE Patient and Service User Experience Office, supported by the HSE Operational Performance and Integration Directorate to co-design an inaugural Patient and Public Partnership Conference in Dublin’s Convention Centre on October 12, 2023

The theme of this event is ‘Creating Tomorrow, Together’.

Patients and service users, and many health staff and managers know that working in partnership ultimately delivers better health outcomes. The HSE Patient and Service User Forum Members are passionate about partnership, and they hope to continue to work with teams and directors within the HSE to ensure that patients and service users can participate in and influence decisions around the design, delivery and evaluation of health services. The Forum also believes patients and service users have a role to play in developing and implementing policy and programmes, and in preparing for organisational change and governance. The essence of genuine partnership lies in fostering collaborative, equal relationships across all areas of the health system.

A lot of work is underway to increase partnership with patients but much remains to be done.  

The conference will feature discussions around approaches to partnership, including panel discussions with staff, patients and service users, as well as presentations to highlight partnership in action and workshops to explore future partnership goals. This conference is a small part of a much bigger conversation which needs to continue into the future and which needs to involve the many others who are discussing similar ideas in other fora.
