Information Fair in Bicester
Healthwatch Oxfordshire is to spend two weeks in Bicester to find out how people rate the town’s health and social care services.
The project will launch with an Information Fair at the John Paul II Centre, Webb Court, Bicester, on September 29, from 10am—1pm. More than 20 voluntary organisations will have stalls, offering details of the services they provide.
The same day, Healthwatch Oxfordshire will have a stall in Bicester’s Market Place, where people will be able to come along and share their experiences of using health and care services.
During September and October, the Healthwatch team will be out and about in the town, gathering feedback on:
- GP surgeries
- Hospital services
- Social care.
Rosalind Pearce, Executive Director of Healthwatch Oxfordshire, said: “This is a tremendously exciting project. Bicester is a growing community, and we are confident that it will generate valuable information and insights into people’s experiences of using services.
The Healthwatch team will be visiting local groups throughout Bicester to find out what people think is good or bad about the health and social care services available.
It will also be an opportunity for people to find out more about Healthwatch Oxfordshire, and how they can help shape the services they use. People will be encouraged to complete a short questionnaire about their experiences and their ratings and comments will be fed back to health trusts and the Oxfordshire County Council.
