Date: 14 Jan 2019 - 11:00 to 13:00
Location: Healthwatch Swindon, Sanford House, Sanford Street, Swindon, SN1 1HE
The next Healthwatch Swindon PPG Forum will be at Sanford House from 11-1 on Monday 14 January 2019. As usual, an invitation will be sent out in due course.
Speakers from Public Health England will be discussing ways in which PPG members could work with practices to encourage take-up of immunisation generally (for all ages) and health screening – and explaining to people what is on offer, where take-up is lower than desirable and so on.
There is serious statistical information on the subject which people would be interested to see. It points out where Swindon is not doing as well as it might (and where we do well).
Many PPG members will have had experience of the flu jab situation this year; and many will also have local contacts and younger family members. So we’d be looking at the broadest immunisation and screening picture possible – and seeing where PPGs could support and encourage take-up.
