New online forum launched by Healthwatch Rochdale
Date published: 02 April 2021
A new online forum has been launched by Healthwatch Rochdale, the borough's independent healthcare watchdog.
Named ‘An audience with….’ the forum will be a monthly information session and will include guest speakers from local services and statutory organisations.
The first forum will be 'An Audience with Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services' and guest speakers will include Charlotte Mitchell, Head of Commissioning (Children’s and Maternity) at Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group, Jennifer O’Neill, Pathway Lead for #Thrive and Dez Wilson, Service Integration Officer for Kooth.
The forum will take place via Zoom on Thursday 15 April 6.30pm – 7.45pm.
The forum will include information and service updates from guest speakers and there will be time available for attendees to ask question in a Q & A session. Healthwatch Rochdale are hosting the forum as part of their role to provide information and advice on local health and care services to the public.
Kate Jones, Healthwatch Rochdale Chief Executive Officer, said: “'An Audience With' is the first piece of our 2021/22 workplan to take place and is different from our previous forums in that we are bringing providers and commissioners of services together with local residents.
This forms part of our statutory duty to provide information to the residents of Rochdale and we are really excited to see how this new forum progresses over the next twelve months”.
“If you are interested in finding out more about Children’s Mental Health Services in the Rochdale borough you can book into the event by emailing email@example.com and a Zoom link will be emailed to you.
