People are invited to meet in the council chamber, Civic Centre, Scunthorpe, on Friday February 28, where she will talk about Healthwatch and discuss how local voices can influence the delivery and design of local services.

Following this event on the same day, Scunthorpe’s governor and members’ forum will take place in the Civic Centre from 3pm to 5pm, which brings an opportunity for members of the public to meet their local Trust governors and find out more about current Trust issues and developments. Half an hour before this from 2.30pm to 3pm, Scunthorpe governors will also be available to chat to over a tea or coffee in an informal setting.
NLaG’s foundation trust office is working in partnership with North Lincolnshire Council to be able to use this venue to provide members with free parking.
