“A cuppa with ….”
Healthwatch Lincolnshire is pleased to announce that it has launched its “a cuppa with …” sessions using Zoom (an online platform to connect people). Our Team of Volunteers and Engagement Officers have missed being able to join you in the community and give you an opportunity to share your experiences around health and care matters. Your FEEDBACK is important to us and now more than ever, we need to hear from you.
“A Cuppa with …” is an informal session held once a month aimed at you the residents of Lincolnshire to join us and have a chat. It is only for an hour: in attendance will be our experienced Signposter and Advice Officer, a member of the Engagement Team and a Volunteer (notetaker).
What is it all about? Want some advice or information? Want to raise a concern but not sure how to do this, or would like to talk to us in more detail about an issue that is a concern?
How can you join in?
If you have a device such as a computer, laptop, tablet or a smart phone, then we will send you a link and once you click on it, you will join our virtual coffee morning! Don’t have access to the internet, you can still join in by phoning in. You will need to check with your ‘phone provider if this will be covered by the terms of your contract or if you will need to pay an additional amount for the call, as the charges vary from contract to contract or if you are pay as you go.
Our experienced Signposter and Advice Officer will be in attendance at each session to help point you in the right direction so that you do not feel alone. We can arrange a confidential chat with a trained volunteer at a time that is convenient for you who will listen to your concerns. Together, we can make a difference.
Our first “a cuppa with …” session was on Learning Disabilities.
24 November 2020 was our first virtual 'A Cuppa with ..' those present enjoyed an informal chat around Annual Health Checks for adults with LD. Where members of the public shared experiences and received signposting if required. We decided that the next virtual 'A Cuppa with …' we would open it up to all members of the public who would like to share their comments or just pop in for a chat about anything to do with Health or Social Care.
There is no set agenda but an opportunity for members of the public to come along and share some of their concerns and issues related to health and care.
Our next session is Tuesday 15 Dec 2020 1.30 pm to 2.30 pm is a general chat about all things health and care. All are welcome.
We will send you the link when you contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to seeing you!
