Our health and care forums are back - online!

Cambridgeshire health and care forums are moving online so that people can continue to have their say on local services.

The three public forums – which run in Huntingdon, Fenland and Greater Cambridge – listen to what the public has to say about services across our area.

They give people a chance to air their views on anything related to local health or care such as doctors, hospitals, chemists and care organisations and care homes.

In March, the forums had to be postponed because of the coronavirus lockdown. But now they are back, online – and everyone is invited to join in.

They are run through Healthwatch Cambridgeshire , the independent champion for people who use health and social care services.

“There have been lots of changes to local services since the outbreak began and some health screening services have temporarily stopped,” explained Caroline Tyrrell-Jones Communities Programme Manager at Healthwatch.

“Fewer people are using A & E at local hospitals and there are also concerns about the impact of the virus and lockdown on people’s mental health.

“So the forums give everyone an opportunity to discuss what’s been happening and tell us what’s working well or needs improving.”
