At our Cumbria Community Listening Event, we will be doing just that – having a conversation with you and so we want to invite the people living and working in Carlisle and the surrounding areas of Cumbria, to share your views and experiences of the 999 emergency service, patient transport service (PTS) and NHS 111.
The event is being hosted by our Patient Engagement Team from 11:30am to 2:30pm at Morton Manor, Carlisle – you can share your thoughts and hear about our plans for 2024, how our services can help you, take part in an interactive question and answer session with some of our senior leaders and find out more about our various careers and volunteer roles with us.
You don’t have to have been a patient to attend the event. The event is open to everyone with an interest in their local healthcare services including members of the public, students, carers, local organisations or community groups.
Head of Communications and Engagement, Julie Treharne explains; “Our communities across the North West are diverse, and all have different needs, but one thing they all have in common is wanting an effective, responsive ambulance service when there is an emergency.
“Our service covers the whole of the North West, and one size does not fit all, so we feel it is important to get out and meet the people we serve to understand their expectations and what their concerns are. In doing so, we can make sure we are an ambulance service everyone can be proud of.”
Not only is there an opportunity to speak to those on the frontline and behind the scenes, we’ll also throw in a free lunch and a brew or two. So come and say hello, come and talk to us and help us learn more about your community. You can book your free places for you and your guests via Eventbrite, emailing [email protected] or by calling 07812305630.
The full address for the event is Morton Manor Community Centre, Wigton Rd, Carlisle CA2 6JP.
