More ‘Chatty van’ dates in November

As previously reported, the Healthwatch “Chatty Van” is touring west, north and east Cumbria and will be visiting a town/place somewhere near you during November to help raise awareness of, distribute and support people to respond to the NHS consultation document, ‘The Future of Healthcare in West, North and East Cumbria’.

This important consultation document sets out a number of options for health service delivery.

HWC is an independent organisation whose role is to ensure that people’s views and experiences of health and care services can inform service delivery and improvement. Our staff will be on the Chatty Van to enable people to access copies of the document by whatever means they require; easy read versions will be available as will electronic versions on iPads that will enable the user to respond immediately to the consultation.

David Blacklock the Chief Executive of Healthwatch Cumbria said: “It is very important that people from across West, North and East Cumbria take up the opportunity to consider and respond to the options that are outlined in the consultation document. We know that people have strong views about how and where services should be delivered and Healthwatch Cumbria’s role is to help as many people as possible to be able to understand, discuss and respond to the consultation”
