Date: 28 Nov 2017 - 10:00 to 15:30
Location: Arlington Centre, Arlington Road NW1 7HE
What’s it about?
This workshop will look at the best ways to develop community services across North London, so that they are available when you need them, including at weekends.
Why is it happening?
NHS organisations and local councils across North London want to help people stay out of hospital where possible. If you do need to be in hospital, they want you to get home as quickly and safely as possible. To do this, they must provide good, reliable community services to support you at home.
What will the workshop cover?
It will look at what happening now, based on the experience of current patients. It will look at what needs to be made better, what needs to be simpler, and what needs to be more joined up. It will explore your ideas on what new services might be needed, and where money could be saved by being more efficient.
What is ‘Co-design’?
Co-design is where people who use health and care services work with those who provide them, giving an equal voice to everyone. The workshop will give plenty of time to share experience and ideas. It will be run in a way that makes it easy for you to join in.
Who is running it?
The workshop is organised by local Healthwatch working together with the North London Partners in Health and Care.
Lunch will be provided.
