Experience of Care at Distance Group

Homepage » Get involved » Engagement » Experience of Care at Distance Group

This group was established some time ago to consider the issues faced by people travelling for care, to visit family and friends and to ensure we are appropriately responding to their challenges and concerns. This group will feed into the maternity and paediatric discussions and bring some of the challenges under consideration to the wider maternity and paediatric group.


The Experience of Care at Distance Group was agreed by Senior Leadership Board to focus on co-produced solutions to mitigate the impact of receipt of care at distance to where people live, including both transport and non-transport issues, and enabling overarching co-ordination of transport and access associated issues.

Various work is taking place on the group to try and improve the experience of healthcare users and staff relating to the delivery of care distant to where people live and work.

One of the areas of work covered as part of this group was the creation of an information leaflet for patients.

This work is still developing for different hospital sites across Cumbria. A pilot has started with a leaflet sent to patients attending the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. Other versions of the leaflets are planned to follow soon.
