The informative workshop was focusing on the importance of local health and social services, and how public feedback makes sure that they run as smoothly as possible. The workshop also covered  looking at how our health services can  be adapted for patients with learning difficulties such as autism.

WHO ARE HEALTHWATCH?

Healthwatch Engagement officer Morag Edmonson was impressed with our learners:

“It is vital that learners understand the importance of health and social services and how the public’s feedback can have a positive or negative effect on them, I was really pleased to see how many of the learners took this to heart!”
