Enable the public to be partners

This is a sound principle but the examples quoted are all fixes that might be developed as a result. I think it is worth emphasising here the need to use a common language across all parties (which may be plain English) to enable the wider community to engage in the whole process of co-production. Health talk disease, social care focuses on dependency and we deliver through services with the same names but different definitions. No wonder it is confusing and difficult for the public to feel on a level playing field.
