MAIN Public information sessions on adult health and social care in Angus

Angus Health and Social Care Partnership is holding its fourth series of drop in Continuing the Conversation information sessions across Angus over the next few weeks.

The sessions offer people the chance to talk to a variety of staff and help shape adult health and social care services for the future.

People are invited to come along to the drop in sessions to help shape how a range of services can be delivered. This series of events will focus on palliative care and end of life services, older people’s mental health, overnight support and falls prevention.

Staff will be also available to talk about a range of prescribing matters. A wide variety of information will be on display about living well and how people can help themselves to stay healthy and improve their wellbeing.

Vicky Irons, Chief Officer for Angus HSCP said, “I would encourage people to come along to these drop in sessions to find out more about health and social care services in Angus. A range of staff will be on hand to answer any questions people may have.

“This is an important opportunity for people in Angus to find out about health and social care in their locality and to get involved in shaping the future vision and direction of adult health and social care as we develop our new strategic plan for the next three years.”

The meetings are free to attend and are being held on the following days:
