Have your say on health services during summer roadshows

People in North Tyneside and Northumberland are being encouraged to give their views about health services at mobile roadshows starting this week.

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is staging a series of roadshows in communities throughout the area between Friday, August 3, and Monday, August 13.

It is seeking people’s views about hospital and community health services, their recent experiences of these and their thoughts about how they could be made even better.

On the first day (Friday, 3 August) the roadshow will be at The Boulevard in Longbenton, from 9am to noon and at the entrance of Forum Shopping Centre in Wallsend from 2pm to 4pm. Over the next 10 days, venues include Whitley Bay, North Shields, Cramlington, Ashington, Morpeth, Alnwick, Hexham and Kielder.

Claire Riley, director of communications and engagement at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: “As the provider of hospital and community health services in North Tyneside and hospital, community health and adult social care services in Northumberland, we are very keen to find out what people think about the care they receive so we can continually improve.

“In May, we ran a number of roadshows in the Berwick area which were a great success. These roadshows give people in communities across Northumberland and North Tyneside an opportunity to have their say.”

At the roadshows, people will be able learn more about the Trust’s £200million investment to improve healthcare. They will also be able to find out more about becoming a member of the Trust, sign up to be a member and meet local governors – people who have been elected to represent members’ views at the Trust.
