Noreen is in conversation with Rachel Thompson (Research Associate in Information Governance and Public Involvement, in the Department of Population Data Science, Swansea University School of Medicine). Rachel's project is called: "Wales' Citizen Engagement with Responses to Covid-19", and in this chat she describes one part of it, which was about running online engagement with members of the public, around attitudes to the track and trace app. This episode was recorded as part of #Scotland #coproweek in November 2020.
Erratum: Noreen inaccurately stated in the introduction that Aj is at Birmigham University. Not so! Here are the correct details of the other participants on this call:
Dr Ajmal Mubarik (Medical Ethics and Law, Manchester University)
Mrs Lynsey Cross (Public Engagement Officer for Population Data Science, Swansea University)

We unpack what we mean by co-production and citizen involvement in public services! We talk about the definition (00:56), the 5 principles of co-production (04:43), doing to/for/with (13:52), complexity theory (24:20), and the reasons why co-production and involvement are all the rage these days in public service circles (36:25). A longish episode to set the scene. [October 2019]
