A HEALTH watchdog is to host a public meeting in Millom tomorrow.
The drop-in session which will give residents the opportunity to voice their healthcare concerns will take place between 10am and 5pm at 34 Lapstone Road, Millom.
Healthwatch England and its regional bodies act as a consumer watchdog for users of healthcare across the country, completely independent from the NHS.
Their role is to work within communities to assess concerns, and then raise them with the appropriate NHS department.
Issues with healthcare providers have been prevalent in Millom for months, with the hospital’s temporary closure of its inpatient ward and the GP surgery’s relocation.
Presentations on the role of Healthwatch Cumbria will be held at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, and anybody is welcome to come along and share their stories, experiences and queries.
