Get Involved with Trafford's 'New Health Deal'

NHS organisations in Trafford are looking for residents to get involved in conversations to help review hospital and wider healthcare services in the borough.

As part of the 'new health deal for Trafford' project, five listening events will be taking place in locations across the borough where attendees will be able to hear about why the services need to be reviewed, and discuss a number of key questions and areas with clinicians.

The opportunity to review and redesign these services follows the announcement that Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will take over the running of Trafford Healthcare NHS Trust.

Both organisations are working closely with NHS Trafford, NHS Greater Manchester, NHS North West and Trafford Provider Services to ensure that the borough's hospital services continue to remain secure for the future.

Listening event schedule:

Monday 5th December, Urmston library, 5.45pm to 7.45pm

Tuesday 6th December, Altrincham Town Hall, 10.30am to 12.30pm

Tuesday 6th December, The Fuse, Partington, 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Friday 9th December, St John's Centre, Old Trafford, 2pm to 4pm

Monday 12th December, Sale Masonic Hall, Sale, 2pm to 4pm

Registration for each event will take place 15 minutes before the start. To book a place, visit www.healthdeal.trafford.nhs.uk where you can book online, email newhealthdeal@trafford.nhs.uk, or call 0161 873 6008.

Mike Barker, NHS Trafford's director of corporate affairs, partnerships and compliance, said: "We value people's thoughts and opinions on how they feel health services should work, and it's important to ensure that the health priorities people have already told us about still stand. These listening events are extremely important, as all of the feedback that is gathered will be used as part of clinical discussions that will start to look at how these services might be arranged in the future."

Those who are unable to attend any of the listening events can still get involved by sharing their views through the dedicated website, www.healthdeal.trafford.nhs.uk, by following the twitter feed, @newhealthdeal, or liking the facebook page, www.facebook.com/newhealthdeal.
