THERE is a chance to find out more about the hospital stroke services in the area at a series of meetings.
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust’s stroke service is nationally recognised as one of the best in the country.
The trust will be holding meetings in different constituencies across the area to tell the public about the service and invite people to share their opinions on what’s good and what could be improved.
Peter Mellor, the hospital trust’s company secretary, said: ‘Public constituency meetings are a very useful tool for the trust to find out from our members and the public what they think needs to be changed or developed.’
Dr Jane Williams, the hospital trust’s chief of service for medicine for older people, rehabilitation and stroke, will be giving a presentation about the stroke services at the meetings.
Portsmouth’s meeting will take place on Monday, May 23, at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham, in the lecture theatre in the education centre on E Level, from 7pm to 9pm.
The Havant and South East Hampshire meeting will take place on Friday, May 27, at Petersfield Hospital in Swan Street, in the seminar room, from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
Fareham’s meeting will take place on Monday, May 31, at Ferneham Hall in the Octagon Room, 7pm to 9pm.
And Gosport’s meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 1, at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital in Bury Road in the seminar room, from 7pm to 9pm.
The hospital trust constituency meetings are held twice a year.
Clinicians from different services at the hospital give presentations at each one.
