This will be a great opportunity for people to share their experiences, whether that’s positive or negative, to celebrate good practice and improve services for the future. The event takes place at 11:00 on Wednesday 22nd May at The Riverside Centre, Newport.

If you would like to attend, email [email protected] or call 01983 522609 to register your interest. If you are unable to make the event and would like to share your experience then get in touch with Healthwatch.
