What does your local health service do well?  What can we do better?

Come along and tell us what you think.

During February, the NHS Better Health Programme held a series of public engagement events.  Local people shared their experience of health services - what works well and where we could improve.

We are now planning a second series of events, to share the feedback we received and seek views on how services could be designed in the future.

We want to explore with you how we improve patient experience and outcomes:

  • How we provide more care outside of hospital
  • How we make sure patients with life threatening needs, receive specialist care so they have the best opportunity to make a good recovery.

A list of dates and venue details are outlined below:
