John’s Fundraising for the Royal Stoke

Firstly, welcome to John and Lisa who joined us for the first time at the August meeting.

John has done an amazing job of fundraising £500.00 plus the donation of a stereo for the 102 Ward at Royal Stoke. Thanks to all his sponsors for their kind support.

We wish him all the best with his ongoing treatment and look forward to see them both at future meetings.

Healthwatch Stoke on Trent

First of all, a big thank-you to Dave Rushton who attended our July meeting and gave us an interesting insight into Healthwatch Stoke-On-Trent.

Healthwatch act as a link between the users and providers of healthcare. PALS (widely advertised in hospitals) are not independent, whereas Healthwatch are completely independent.

Healthwatch have the power to ‘enter and view’ facilities an make reports on what they find.

Healthwatch work with individuals, community groups and other organisations and provide useful feedback to the providers of healthcare whether or not the feedback is positive.

We can all join in with the Healthwatch community. A good place to start is to read the local Newsletter published online and in printed form. Click on the link below to reach their excellent website…
