Healthwatch is holding a listening event and annual survey tomorrow (Friday)from 10am to 1pm in the Maltings.

A spokesman for the Berwick Deserves a Better Hospital campaign group said: “At the last one, we managed to get the word out and many people turned up. This time, because it’s getting closer to hearing from Northumbria Healthcare/Clinical Commissioning Group about their plans, we need more people than ever turning up.

“We are still waiting to hear where our new hospital will be built but, wherever that might be, it will only be as good as the services the CCG provide us with. Berwick needs and deserves the services we had previously, and more. The proposed integrated hospital was neither big enough nor good enough to provide future-proofed care.”

If you can’t make it to the event, then please fill in the survey online: healthwatchnorthumberland.co.uk/annual-survey-2019-share-your-experiences/
