Emma Friddin from Healthwatch Enfield invites residents to join the organisation’s annual conference
Tickets are going fast for Healthwatch Enfield’s biggest ever annual conference. We’ll be hosting discussions with local health leaders, so this is your chance to find out what these changes will mean for you and give feedback directly to the people running services.
As a local branch of Healthwatch, we are here not only to give you information about health and social care in Enfield, but also to ensure your views are heard when services are being developed. There are some key changes happening, for example, where GP surgeries are joining up into networks. It’s vital that we can all understand and contribute to the conversation, as we all have a role to play.
Our annual conference is a great opportunity for you to get your views heard and, this year, we are making it bigger and better than ever! It is taking place on Wednesday 4th March from 9am-2.30pm at The Ark Royal in Meridian Way, Edmonton. We would love to see you there!
You will also have the opportunity to hear from local NHS leaders about other topics such as ‘social prescribing’ and hospital updates, while participating in table discussions to share your views. We will be providing lunch and refreshments to keep you fed and watered.
The conference is inclusive to all. Our previous conferences have welcomed people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds from across the borough. It is our job to make sure that the information we give you is as accessible as possible, and we work really hard to make sure everyone attending can understand, participate and enjoy the event.
For example, we will be providing British Sign Language interpreters and there will be Healthwatch staff, volunteers and table facilitators to help you on the day. If you haven’t been to one of our annual conferences before, why don’t you come along and get involved? If you have been to one before, we really look forward to seeing you again!
Please be advised that places are limited and we recommend booking early via our website to avoid disappointment.
