We all know what a big issue access to healthcare is for our community and in particular the difficulties many face in accessing GP services. As someone who has previously signed up to get healthcare campaign updates we wanted to invite you to an event at parliament we are having next week to bring Patient Participation Groups together as well as those interested in joining one.
We will be discussing the healthcare challenges in our area as well as talk about ways we can get more people involved in healthcare campaigns locally.
For some more context you can hear Stella on The Today Programme this morning speaking about PFI debt and the challenges ahead. Starts at around 2 hours, 54 minutes.
Anyone interested in attending should email to RSVP.
There will be a number of guest speakers as well as an opportunity for those involved in setting up PPGs to talk about the experiences. We hope this event will be the beginnings of work to make healthcare accessible to everyone in Walthamstow and for a #HealthyE17.
