The next Healthwatch Dudley Board Meeting will take place on Monday 11 August 2014 starting at 6.30pm.
The meeting will be held in public and all are welcome to attend to observe the Board’s discussions.
We will be holding all future Board meetings in public because we think it is important for local people to understand what we do and observe how decisions are made at Board level.
In addition to observing the business of the meeting, members of the public have the opportunity to ask questions relating to the work of Healthwatch Dudley.
In order to provide a comprehensive response we would prefer questions to be submitted in advance by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Healthwatch Dudley, 7 Albion Street, Brierley Hill, DY5 3EE by the morning of Monday 11th August for discussion at the meeting, however, there will also be an opportunity to ask questions at a set point during the meeting.
The meeting will take place at:
Bank Street Church Hall

England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals is inviting members of the public to tell his inspection panel what they think of the services provided by The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust.
Their views and experiences will help inspectors decide what to look at when they inspect the trust.
The trust is among the first to be inspected and given an overall rating under radical changes which have been introduced by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The formal inspection of The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust will start on 25 March 2014.
To ensure the views of patients and the local community are properly heard, the inspectors will be holding two listening events, both at 6.30pm on Tuesday 25 March. The events will be held at Dudley Town Hall, Dudley and The Talbot Hotel in Stourbridge.
