It was lovely, yet again to see so many at our weekly Cuppa and Chat session on Thursday afternoon, and some new faces too. We were visited by two members from The Healthwatch Bury group, who are welcoming people to ‘Have their say on local health and social care services’.
Healthwatch visit different areas of Bury to meet with its residents and they will be returning to us in the next 4 to 6 weeks. If you have something to report or make enquiries about please do not hesitate to come to Greenmount Old School between 2 and 4pm on a Thursday afternoon. The date of their next visit will be confirmed in due course. One of the main questions yesterday was ‘Are we having our Flu Jabs at our GP’. The answer to this question is no. You can find more information on this link https://www.bury.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=16483
Please note, if you wish to speak to a member of the Healthwatch team, you do not need to be attending a Cuppa and Chat as there will be a separate area available for anyone wishing to speak in private.
