Health changes under scrutiny at Norwich Older People’s Forum

An older people's group in Norwich will be focusing on changes to health services at its meeting this week.

The Norwich Older People's Forum (NOPF) meets on Friday, March 11, and representatives health services will be attending to answer questions and listen to concerns. Lady Joyce Hopwood, chairman of the NOPF, said: 'We know that changes to the way local health services are provided are imminent. At the next forum meeting, you have maybe your only opportunity to find out what these changes might mean for you, and have your say on what you think about them.' Panel members include Sheila Childerhouse, chairman of NHS Norfolk, James Elliott, manager of the Norwich Consortium of GPs, Norwich GP Dr Chris Francis and Catherine Underwood, director of commissioning for health and social care in Norfolk. The meeting will be held from 10am to 12.30pm at Blackfriars Hall, St Andrews Plain.
