Consumer groups offer a unique partnership between Carers, Hospital Management and Consumers and help initiate communication within the hospital and the community it serves. Consumer groups are widely beneficial, both to the hospital and those who wish to get involved. A Consumer Group would offer a unique platform for the Community and Hospital to find ways to further expand on the excellent service provided by UCHG and to work together on problem solving. AIMSI West base this recommendation on the success of the OLOL Drogheda and Cavan groups. The OLOL Consumer Group has made huge strides and has created keen international interest. In the effort of breaking ground on this exiting prospect, AIMSI West have created an online survey for consumers in the UCHG catchment in order to ascertain if a Consumer Group would be well received.
