NORTH Somerset’s watchdog for patients is coming to Weston-super-Mare to find out what the public think of health and social care services.

Healthwatch North Somerset is looking to find out what people really think of maternity services.

Representatives of Healthwatch need the views of women who are using or recently used maternity services to help compile a report.

The sessions will be held today (Thursday) from 1-2pm in Yatton High Street, tomorrow (Friday) from noon to 2pm at Mothercare in Phillips Road, Weston, on October 15 from 12.30-2.30pm also at Mothercare, and on November 19 from 1-2pm on Weston seafront.

Chief officer at Healthwatch North Somerset Eileen Jacques said: “It’s our job as an independent watchdog to make sure we have a deep understanding about how the public feel about health-related services in the region.”

People are also invited to attend the watchdog’s annual meeting on Tuesday from 2.30-4.30pm at the Hans Price Building next to Weston College in Lower Church Road, to find out more about what it does.
