Annual Healthwatch event – 12th September in Middleton Hall, CMK. The event is the largest of its kind held locally and is a great opportunity for people to find out about services and innovations in health and social care. Healthwatch is the statutory body responsible for listening to and representing patients, working to improve health and social care services so they work for the people who use them.

This year’s event will host the Medical Detection Dogs team. The team work with dogs trained to sniff out medical diseases, such as cancer and Parkinson’s. This initiative is being trialled in partnership with the Open University.
