The NHS is working with local people, communities and partners in the Black Country to host a series of People Panels to help shape healthier, happier futures.

The People Panels, which are taking place throughout March, provide local people, representatives of communities and healthcare professionals, providers and decision makers, with a space to raise topics and issues that matter most, for a shared conversation.

Participants are invited to bring forward their questions, ideas, or challenges for collective discussion, to encourage creative and action orientated conversation and help lead to wiser, more meaningful actions.

The workshops are taking place across the Black Country on the following dates:

Dr Ananta Dave, Chief Medical Officer for the NHS Black Country Integrated Care Board, said: “Our People Panels are a place that local people can bring forward conversation topics or any burning issues about health and care.

“This can be on a wide range of matters, whether it’s the future of primary care, communications, the importance of cancer screening appointments, cost of living or making the most of our green spaces – if it’s important to you, we want to hear about it.

“We want people of all ages, genders, and languages to come forward and have their say to help shape the services we provide now and in the future. With your help we can improve our health and care system and make sure your voice is heard so please do attend if you can.”
