Healthwatch Worcestershire visited Kidderminster College this week and ran workshops with the Level 3 Health & Social Care learners.
The organisation provides an independent voice for people who use publicly funded health and social care services. Healthwatch reach out to those with learning disabilities, older people, parents and carers and in this instance, young people and children.
The learners enjoyed taking part in an interactive quiz and group work on topics such as ‘young people’s views of the NHS’, emotional well-being and mental health. The workshop also raised awareness of new on-line counselling services.
Morag Edmondson from Healthcare Worcestershire, feels that these workshops are vital to raise awareness of services in order to make recommendations to them on how they can be improved.
