Roadshows to learn of new health champion

A series of roadshows are being held across Northumberland to let people know about a new health group.

Healthwatch Northumberland is a new consumer champion for health and social care.

It will give the people of Northumberland a stronger voice to influence and challenge how health and social-care services are provided.

Roadshows are being held at Storey Park, Morpeth, on Wednesday, June 19, from noon to 3.30pm and St James’s Church, Pottergate, Alnwick, on Friday, June 21, from 11am to 2.30pm.

Northumberland County Council has commissioned Adapt (NE) to establish Healthwatch Northumberland and a team of seven workers has begun to help people who have concerns, questions, comments and compliments.

Roadshow places can be booked on 03332 408 468.
