How can children’s health services work better for your family?

16 April 2015

GPs in Havering are inviting parents to have their say about how local health services for children can be developed and improved.

Between 12.30 and 2.30pm on Monday 20 April, clinicians and NHS staff will be on hand at Harold Hill’s MyPlace building to discuss parents’ experiences of local health services for children aged 16 of age and under.

This is a great opportunity for local people to feed back directly to the NHS and to influence decisions on how GP, hospital and community services for their children can be improved.

There will also be second event held on Friday 24 April at First Step in Hornchurch from 10.30am-1.30pm especially for parents with children that have special educational needs and disabilities, who will also be able to share their experiences of local services and give their ideas for improvement.

Dr Atul Aggarwal, a local GP and chair of Havering Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said:

“We want local parents to come along, have their say and help make a difference for children in Havering.

“These events are a great opportunity for parents to take a hands-on role in shaping local services. Whether it is about coughs, colds, bumps or bruises, we want to know how you think children’s health services could work more effectively for you and your family. What you say could be used to help us improve services and ensure that local children and their parents have access to the care, support and advice they need, when they need it.”
