The health services watchdog for North Wales – the North Wales Community Health Council (NWCHC) - wants to hear from people about their experiences of Health Services during menopause.
The NWCHC will be hosting a series of events across the region inviting patients, their carers and their families to talk about all aspects of Health Services in North Wales affecting people whilst going through the menopause.
Mr Geoff Ryall-Harvey, Chief Officer for NWCHC said “This is an opportunity for people to have their say. We know that in the build up to (perimenopause) and during the menopause, many may need to access a whole range of different health services and their experiences might vary considerably. It is vital that we are able to present the feedback we receive to those who make decisions and policies about health services in North Wales’’.
Mr Ryall-Harvey went on to say “We want to hear from as many as possible. Our events will be held across the region and will be structured around a number of aspects about health services such as compliments, concerns and complaints, care planning, care provision and communication. We understand that in some instances, people might wish to share their experiences in a more confidential way and we will ensure that there is an opportunity for such discussions to take place privately. We will be providing people with the opportunity to meet either in person, or remotely over video-conference if they so wish. Further events will be arranged in due course.’’
