Have your say on NHS at roadshow

People across Northumberland are being encouraged to have their say on local health services at roadshows across the area starting this week.

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.

The trust, alongside health and social care partners, will be seeking to find out residents’ recent experiences of these and their thoughts about how they could be made even better.

People will be able to give their views about any aspect of hospital and community care, and adult social care in Northumberland, including the new model of emergency care which was introduced in Northumberland and North Tyneside in June.

Claire Riley, director of communications and corporate affairs at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, said: “In order for us to continually improve the care we provide to our patients in hospitals and in the community across Northumberland and North Tyneside, we’re very keen to find out what people think about the services we provide.”

The roadshow will be taking place on Friday, September 25, from 10am to noon in the main entrance at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, and at Riverside Leisure Centre car park in Morpeth from 2pm to 3pm, and again on Tuesday, September 29, from 10am to noon in Blyth Market Place, and 2pm to 4pm in Ashington’s John Street car park.
