Talking about your health

What do you want from your local health service over the next five years? Are you confident that women's issues will be high on the agenda? Will their particular needs be met? 

If not, then make sure you get your voice heard at one of these public discussions about the future of Whittington Health.  It's a chance to let the planners hear your views - don't let it go!  

The first meeting is Tuesday November 4. The Women's Forum will be there, so please look out for us. And if you can't make that meeting, or any of the others, please tell us what's important to you and what you would like us to raise on your behalf.

You can fill in the feedback form below or email Lourdes or Jeannie.

Good to see such a big turnout for this, including Catherine West. Our table started off talking about patient champions, but ended up covering maternity services, ambulances, waiting times for referral appointments, and joined-up physical and mental health care, especially in relation to age and dementia. Lots of notes were taken, and we were promised updates on progress.

Lourdes and I attended this event and found it a valuable forum for feeding back what we liked about local NHS services, what we didn’t like, and what needed to be better.
The event was organised with people sitting at small tables, so everyone got a chance to be heard in a small group and we didn’t have to feel nervous about speaking to a large audience.
One of the key issues from our small group (on services for older people) was how to join up Health and Social care, when the latter responsibility lies with the local authority. It makes sense, but how will it work?
I did get the impression that the staff leading on each table were taking our issues on board. However we are all aware of the precarious state of the NHS. We need to keep fighting! We’ll post info about this as we get it, but definitely worth going along if there’s another event.
