Find out how health care will be run

MEMBERS of the public are invited to information sessions outlining Calderdale’s new patient forum.

An information-sharing session has been organised by Calderdale LINK relating to their replacement body, the Health Watch.

It will also include a look at a draft consultation document by Calderdale Council on how to commission the new Health Watch in Calderdale from October 2012.

Health Watch will provide the chance for people to be involved in how health and social care services are delivered in Calderdale.

Rachel Jones, co-ordinator of Calderdale LINK, said: “Most people living in Calderdale will have either used health or social care services or have a family member who has. The changes which are beginning to take place in the nature of these services will have lasting implications for us all.”

The information-sharing session will take place at Halifax fire station on January 12 from 1.30pm to 3pm.
