Healthwatch Dudley is part of a new local health partnership called All Together Better who want to listen to and learn from local people, about the things that keep communities healthy and well.
Every day local community groups and clubs, social enterprises and voluntary organisations are contributing to people being well, healthy and cared for. Health and social care services in Dudley borough are changing and we have been asked by the All Together Better partnership to arrange a series of interactive listening events.
People who attend will be able to try out activities to unlock some of the hidden knowledge in communities. They will then be able to take away packs to use with people who they know, support or volunteer with.
At these events you will be warmly welcomed and will be able to:
- Meet and talk to people from different groups and organisations
- Find out about some of the planned changes to health and care services and why so much change is happening in Dudley
- Think about and discuss who plays a part in helping people to be well, healthy and cared for locally
- Take part in discussions and give feedback which will be given to decision makers
- Be given an Activity Pack to take away and use with your group or organisation
Activity Packs are designed for you to involve people in Dudley’s ‘biggest ever conversation about health and social care’. They include ways of giving feedback on your ideas, discussions and concerns to Healthwatch Dudley. Everything we hear will be fed back to decision makers in April.
Be in the Know sessions are happening all around Dudley borough including at a People’s Network event!
