Have a say at hospital meeting

A HEALTH trust is giving people the opportunity to have a say on emergency care at a meeting taking place next weekend.

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust is holding an event for members and people who are interested in becoming a member, and there will also be a chance to hear about dementia and urgent and emergency care at the same time.

Chairman Paul Garvin said: “This is a great opportunity for members to find out more about their local health service and also to meet their governors that represent them.”

The event takes place on Saturday, January 18, in the Education and Learning Centre, on the ground floor of the Hart Building at the University Hospital of Hartlepool, in Holdforth Road.

Free parking will be available.

Refreshments will be available from 9.30am and the event will start at 10am with presentations followed by time for questions and discussion.

The event will close at 11.30am.

The event is free, but people need to book a place.

People can do this by phoning (01642) 383920 or sending an email to membership@nth.nhs.uk
