You can have you say in trying to shape Croydon’s health services at events on Thursday 5, Saturday 7 November, and Monday 9 November.
- Croydon’s health and social care services
The Healthwatch Croydon Advisory Forum meeting on Thursday 5 November (4-6pm) is looking for volunteers to become members reflecting all ages and backgrounds. Their role is to inform the Healthwatch Croydon Board and staff of current health and social care issues and enable decisions to be made that reflect the community’s perspective. This is an opportunity to find out more about what the Advisory Group does, vote for a new chair and vice-chair or consider running for a role yourself.

On Monday 9 November (4–6pm) The governors of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) have organised a meeting for members and the public to have their say and find out more about what is going on locally to support people with mental health issues. The meeting is aimed at the Trust’s 13,000 members and anyone who uses SLaM’s services or wants to find out more about what it does.
MIND’s Fairfield Hall room, 10 Altyre Road, East Croydon CR0 5LA.
