Brent CCG and Brent Council Social Care thanks everyone who attended the joint Health Partners Forum on Wednesday 31 January at Sudbury Primary School, at which opening remarks were made by local GP and CCG Clinical Chair, Dr Ethie Kong and Leader of Brent Council, Councillor Muhammed Butt.
The event saw GPs and commissioning managers of health and care services interacting with members of the public and other stakeholders on key issues in urgent and emergency care services. These service areas were discussed from the perspectives of people with long term conditions (LTCs) such as respiratory conditions and diabetes, end of life care, older people, children & young people and hospital discharge. Lively debate and discussions took place between members of the public, clinicians and CCG managers in a series of workshop sessions on each of these areas.
Also in attendance were senior managers from London North West University Healthcare Trust who provided an update about urgent and emergency care at Northwick Park and Central Middlesex Hospitals. Updates were also presented by the London Ambulance Service and NHS 111. A number of other service providers ran stalls including hospices. Voluntary groups such as Brent Carers Centre, plus Healthwatch Brent and Hestia were on hand to provide information about the services they provide within the community.
