Healthy Communities –
Supporting Self-Care & Empowering Bristol’s Citizens
Date: 20 October 2016
Venue: Trinity Centre, Bristol, BS2 0NW
Time: 10am till 3.45pm
Join Bristol Community Health and partners on 20 October for a free day of events at the Trinity Centre, which explore how we can work together to create healthy communities.
The day starts at 10am with a look at how patients and carers have been involved in improvements to our services. We also launch our exciting new, partnership-led patient and community leadership programme, where patients are trained as leaders to support us and two local hospitals, with the aim of shaping future health services.
From 12.30pm there is a free lunch followed by a live panel debate, which is being broadcast live by Ujima FM: Mind the gap! Should the NHS promote self-care to become more sustainable? Experts answer audience questions on whether we should encourage self-care to address the NHS deficit.
From 2.45pm, we invite you to share in some cake as we celebrate our organisation’s 5th birthday. Learn more about our work through a new impact report, plus a photography exhibition and short film, produced by local young people with support from Babbasa.
