Health Matters Events

Last updated: 01/04/2020

Health Matters is the Trust's programme of public information and engagement events for Foundation Trust members, staff, and members of the public. If you have any suggestions for topics please let us know by emailing foundationtrust@uhbw.nhs.uk.

Our next Health Matters Event:

Healthier Together@Home - Thursday 6 October 2022, 2.00pm–3.30pm - Book Here!

We would like to invite you to a ‘Health Matters’ session on Thursday 6 October from 2.00-3.30pm, where you will have an opportunity to find out more about a new Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) service called ‘Healthier Together@Home’. There will be a short presentation on Healthier Together@Home and then a chance to talk about it in small groups, to share your feedback and make suggestions.

Healthier Together@Home aims to support care in the home environment, whenever it is clinically appropriate to do so. This might be just a few days towards the end of a hospital stay or might mean that the person doesn’t need to come in at all and can be fully treated at home. Dedicated teams will provide care to people where they live, supported by a blend of remote technology and in-person care.

We want Healthier Together@Home to be available to support everyone, and we really want to hear how you think this can be achieved and how it might work for you. This is a great opportunity to share your views, talk to us about how you think the service will affect people’s health and wellbeing, any barriers which may stop people from being able to use the service and how we might be able to overcome these barriers. Your feedback will absolutely influence how the service works. 

The event will take place on Thursday 6 October at 2.00pm-3.30pm at the Level 9 Restaurant, Bristol Royal Infirmary, Marlborough Street, Bristol BS2 8HW, and the doors will open 30 minutes beforehand for refreshments. All welcome. To book your place, click here, or contact us at FoundationTrust@uhbw.nhs.uk or 0117 342 3764.

Our Future Events:

Future events are being planned in the fields of Ante- & Post-Natal Pain Relief, the Vaccine & Testing Team, Quality Counts and A Day in the Life of a Hospital Visit. Look out for more information in our emailed newsletters to Foundation Trust members and on this page!

Previous Events:

Health Matters Event - Making our hospitals greener – a sustainability story: Tuesday 26 July at 5.30pm-7pm

A panel of speakers discussed the actions of the NHS in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire around single-use plastics, recycling, waste disposal and vehicle emissions and cutting carbon emissions at our hospitals. Check out the video of the event here.

Meet your Governor events - Tell us what matters to you

Governors are keen to get out and about and find out what matters to the people who use our hospitals. Our first Meet Your Governor event this year was an opportunity for residents and staff in North Somerset to meet their Governors and was held on 23 June 2022 at Weston General Hospital. We are also hoping to hold Meet your Governor events in Bristol and South Gloucestershire over the coming year.
