Why we have organised this event
This event has been organised so that members of the public can hear directly from professionals who run local services.
We know that it can be sometimes be confusing to know how to use services, especially if there have been temporary changes because of the pandemic. This event gives the people who provide the service a chance to let you know what is happening and for you to ask questions.
It is a chance to raise awareness both for people running the services to understand what your main concerns are. And for the public to find out new information about how to make the best use of the health and care services in Enfield.
Whatever your questions, please detail these as you log on to book your place, or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us (020 8373 6283) by Monday 30th November.
Note that you must ask your question in advance and by the deadline. Due to the likely numbers joining, we will be unable to take questions on the day. There is also an option to join the meeting by phone if you do not have internet access.
Please let us know as soon as possible, if you have any access needs/ require a BSL interpreter. We look forward to you joining us.
