The next Furness Listening Event is due to take place at
12:30pm on Friday 25th September 2015 at Barrow Town Hall, Duke St, Barrow LA14 2LD.
There will be an opportunity to talk about issues relating to health in the Furness area this week.
It’s being held straight after the ‘Maternity Matters’ session due to be held in the Town Hall from 9:30am – 1:30pm on the same day.
It will give people there the chance to talk about other aspects of healthcare with some local clinicians on hand to listen to any comments, queries or concerns that members of the public might raise.
The previous Furness Listening Event in June focused on communication – and saw issues raised around the way departments and organisations communicate with one another, and the way colleagues introduce themselves to patients and their families.
Arabella Onslow, Deputy Lead GP for NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Furness said “The listening event team is delighted to support UHMBT at their maternity matters event which will inform the public about how maternity services are moving on following the Kirkup enquiry. Working with our partners and the public is essential for joined up effective health care services. However, we are committed to providing listening space to ensure people have the opportunity to talk to us about their health, care and wellbeing which will take place over lunch for one hour from 12.30pm-13.30pm. Drop in & talk to us, we are here to listen.”
