Do you live in south London and what would you do to make NHS services better?
A team of researchers from King’s College London and St George’s, University of London, are keen to hear the views of patients and local residents.
They are holding an event on Saturday 7 March in Waterloo which is open to everyone who uses NHS services in south London.
Professor Diana Rose from King’s College London says: “We want to tell people what we are doing and are very interested in hearing what people think about our plans.”
She and her team of researchers are focused on improving services for:
- people with diabetes
- pregnant women
- people who need palliative and end of life care
- new mothers
- people who have experienced psychosis
- people who drink alcohol in a hazardous way
- people who have had a stroke.
Their work is funded by the National Institute for Health Research and is being carried out under the auspices of the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research (CLAHRC) South London.
The CLAHRC’s mission is to improve health services by investigating how to make ‘tried and tested treatments’ routinely available.
The event will run from 10am to 3.30pm on Saturday 7 March at Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre, 108 Stamford Street, SE1 9NH.
It is chaired by NHS commentator and blogger Roy Lilley and will include a free lunch – the cost of travel to Waterloo will be refunded and a crèche will be available. You can book a place by:
