Healthwatch Together are running a series of events in communities across Central Lancashire and Morecambe Bay during October, to chat to local people about the New Hospitals Programme and hear what they think about the longlist of proposals for new hospital facilities.
Healthwatch is the independent national champion for people who use health and social care services, with particular focus on those who find it hardest to be heard, and the New Hospitals Programme is working with the Healthwatch teams serving Lancashire, South Cumbria, Blackpool, Blackburn and Darwen.
The roadshow events are an opportunity for local people to meet Healthwatch representatives face-to-face to find out more about the New Hospitals Programme, ask questions and put forward their ideas and opinions. This includes capturing feedback on the longlist of possible solutions for hospital facilities in Preston, Lancaster and Barrow-In-Furness. Visit the New Hospitals Programme website for the schedule of events.
