April 2019: Communications and engagement strategy for phase two
This document is an updated strategy based upon an
outline strategy developed and shared in November
2017 with the Stakeholder panel. It has been developed further after endorsement and input from Path to Excellence NHS South Tyneside and Sunderland partners from the trust and clinical commissioning groups, stakeholder advisory panel and Healthwatch organisations.
It will continue to be updated as progress is made
towards formal consultation which is expected later in 2020.
Clear tactical communications and engagement action plans underpin key elements of this strategy.
