Healthwatch Northumberland Conference 2019

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 10:30 to 15:30

The Healthwatch Northumberland Conference 2019 is at The Phoenix Theatre in Blyth on Wednesday 16 October.

Healthwatch Northumberland is the independent champion for people who use NHS and social care services.

The Conference will include listening workshops, films and guest speakers on the areas of health and social care people in Northumberland told us were most important to them – mental health, GP services, access to services and dementia. The event is free and there’ll be an ‘information buffet’ providing information on local health and support services, a free raffle, plus lunch and refreshments will be provided.

This is your chance to share your experiences with those that provide them and find out what’s available locally.

Come and join in the community conversation about your local health and social care services.

Workshops and talks include:

  • Health Checks – why aren’t more people taking up these.
  • Substance Misuse  – assessing local needs.
  • Primary Care Networks – more about how GP surgeries are working together.
  • Patient Participation Groups – how to get more involved with your local surgery.
  • Social Prescribing – how community-based services can help with health issues.
  • A Space at the Table – Real life experiences of those caring for loved ones with dementia.
  • Singing workshop – a fun feel-good session from a local group which runs sessions for those with memory loss.
  • Dementia-friendly ambulances – how listening to patients has led to innovative new dementia-friendly vehicles.

If you live or work in Northumberland we’d love to see you there.
