There is never enough time at the HealthWatch Annual General Meeting for members to discuss what they want to achieve, and how they can help to forward our aims. So this time we’ve arranged a proper workshop, which we’ve named “Whither HealthWatch?” to take place on the afternoon of the HealthWatch AGM. Aim? To review the aims and activities of HealthWatch, and help to generate a new vision for our charity’s future.
The programme will start with brief introductions to five areas of activity and what HealthWatch can do: to debunk myths; for student outreach; to influence public policy; to go forward with our publications; to influence clinical practice. We will then break up into separate groups to discuss these areas of activity, and after tea each group will report back to the meeting as a whole, followed by discussion of what should be our priorities.
“Whither HealthWatch?” will run from at 2:30pm until 5:00pm on Thursday 20th October 2016 at the Medical Society of London, 11 Chandos Street, Cavendish Square, London W1G 9EB (nearest Underground stations are Bond St or Oxford Circus). Members, friends and supporters of HealthWatch may take part. Places are limited, apply for yours here.
All are most welcome to remain for the 28th Annual General Meeting of HealthWatch which begins shortly afterwards. More information about the other HealthWatch events planned for the day can be found here.
