Health check

HEALTH officials will be checking up on service performance in a Morpeth roadshow next week.

The roadshow will call into the town on Thursday as part of a bid by Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to seek people’s views about its services.

The trust is keen to hear residents’ experiences of hospital and community health services, and how they think they can be improved.

Visitors will also be able to learn more about the trust’s £200million investment in care, find out how to become a member of the trust and meet local governors.

Trust Director of Communications and Engagement Claire Riley said: “As the provider of hospital and community health services in North Tyneside and hospital, community health and adult social care services in Northumberland, we are very keen to find out what people think about the care they receive so we can continually improve.”

The roadshow will be in the Market Place on Thursday, August 9, from 10am to 4pm.
