On Sunday 4th June we attended the Spring into Summer event at Springfield Park in Kidderminster. Organised by the Friends of Springfield Park this fantastic event provided loads of fee activities for children and families. That, and the live entertainment, kept the smiles on people’s faces despite the lack of sunshine. We spoke with over 140 people about local health and social care services and also tested our new Survey about NHS 111 (please see below).


We want to know about awareness of the NHS 111 service in Worcestershire and hear your feedback about using and promoting the service. We are keen to hear from everyone, not just those who have used the service. So please visit our website and take part online at www.healthwatchworcestershire.co.uk. We will also be visiting groups and events across Worcestershire with the survey and to talk to people about NHS 111. Do contact us if you would like us to come and visit your group or would like us to send you paper copies of the survey.
