Monthly free health events programme launched

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UH Bristol) has launched its monthly health-themed events programme for 2020. 

These free 'Health Matters' events are held for Foundation Trust members and members of the public to find out more about the different health conditions or service developments, and ask questions.

They are also an opportunity to engage with the hospital other than when just attending an appointment and to meet UH Bristol staff and governors.

John Chablo and Marimo Rossiter, governors for UH Bristol said: "These events are a great way to hear more about the work of the hospitals and for us, as governors, to hear your thoughts and to ensure that we're representing your needs."

The programme for 2020 to date is as follows:
