Healthwatch our engagement work - 15th and 27th October 2021


Thamesmead Festival - 14 August 2021

On 15th October we will be at Morrisons Welling and on 27th October we will be at Queen Mary's Hospital in the main foyer 10am until 3pm.  Future engagements will be advertised via our social media pages.

We have slowly started to increase our face to face engagements since August.  We were pleased to be invited to attend the Thamesmead Festival in August which was located at Southmere Lakes.  The sun was shining and the event was well attended.  We were able to talk to residents about their experiences with accessing their GP practice.

In September we spent a day at Queen Mary's hospital, Sidcup raising awareness of Healthwatch Bexley and talking to residents about the hospital services they had used. 

We were also invited to attend a marketplace event at the new Job Centre in Bexleyheath which was focussed around health and wellbeing.  In addition to this, we also visited Blackfen Library and Morrisons Erith.


Unfortunately, the 15th October event above has had to be cancelled. The 27th October one still stands for now.

Meanwhile, Healthwatch Bexley are running a short poll to ask if residents now feel they have received sufficient information relating to the covid-19 vaccination.  It is just two questions and takes about one minute to complete.  We are only running this until 5pm on Monday 18th October as it is just a quick snapshot into what residents think.
