Have your say on health services at NHS roadshows
People across Northumberland and North Tyneside are being encouraged to have their say on local health services at NHS roadshows taking place next week.
From Monday 3 October until Saturday 8 October, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is visiting communities to find out people’s views about hospital and community health services, and adult social care in Northumberland.
Part of the NHS’ rolling programme of engagement activity, residents are invited to come along to share feedback with the trust and local NHS organisations about any recent experiences, and to give their thoughts about how care can be improved.
Claire Riley, director of communications and corporate affairs at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Throughout the year we continually listen to our communities in order that we further improve the care we provide across Northumberland and North Tyneside.
“The roadshows are an excellent opportunity for members of the public to share feedback about the services we, and other NHS organisations, deliver and we encourage people to visit us.”
Northumbria Healthcare will be joined at the roadshows by North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group and Healthwatch.
At the roadshows, residents in Northumberland will also be able to have an update on work to develop new more joined-up models of care.
