Healthwatch Team Hits the Shops to Meet Hull Residents

Shoppers in two busy Hull locations will be able to find out more about the city’s patients’ consumer champion, Heathwatch, and contribute to important research this month.

The Healthwatch Kingston upon Hull team is on the road for a special day on Monday 20th March to raise awareness of its service and find out about the health priorities which matter to Hull people.

The staff will be on a special bus in the car parks at Tesco Hull on Hall Road from 9.30am until 12.30 and then St Andrew’s Shopping Park, Hessle Road, from 1.30pm-4.

Delivery Manager Gail Purcell says:

We’re asking the public for opinions on the issues we should look at over the coming year. So far, at various different events, we have had a brilliant response. Healthwatch is all about making contact with the residents of Hull and helping with health and social care issues, from finding out about services to providing advice about making a complaint

Healthwatch, the independent patients’ champion, already visits seven public  locations every month across Hull to meet local people, provide information and ask for views on health and social care.
