[12 AUG 98] COVENTRY HEALTH AUTHORITY PRESS RELEASE
Coventry Communities Finding Out Their Own Health Needs

Coventry Health Authority is launching a new initiative to tackle inequalities in health and to improve the services available in Coventry.  This project will involve members of these communities to assess their community health concerns and needs.  The end result will be a structured and detailed analysis of the health and health service issues identified by these communities.

The project will work with the City Council's existing area-coordination structure which already has strong links with the six communities, which are Spon End/Radford, Hillfields, Foleshill, Wood End, Stoke Aldermoor/Willenhall and Canley/Tile Hill. The first stage of this project is to recruit 4 trainers from each of these areas, who would be responsible for training and supporting community researchers. These trainers will need to currently either work or live in these areas so that they have an excellent understanding of their community and its needs. This will be providing a unique opportunity for people in the community to be involved in planning and implementing health services.

Sylvia Summer, Health Promotion Manager for Coventry Health Promotion Services says:

"We're really excited with this venture. This has the potential for people's views to be listened to and acted upon directly by those making the decisions."

If anyone is interested in becoming a trainer, please contact Health Promotion Services, tel (01203) 633066.
