A heatwave has been forecast for the next few days in the London area. While we all like some sunny weather, when it is too hot for too long this can cause some people problems. The main health issues are dehydration and heat exhaustion. Why not look on the NHS Choices website for more information on how to beat the heat.
New Reports from Healthwatch Barnet
We have released three new reports. One looks at the quality and availability of hospice care for residents of Barnet. The second looks at the experience of women giving birth in Barnet. The final report looks at issues surrounding the treatment of dementia in the Borough. All of the reports are available to download now. Healthwatch has a major role in amplifying the experiences and opinions of the residents of Barnet. Both of these reports will be presented to official committees of the Council. In this case the reports will be presented to the Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee.
Supporting people with learning difficulties in primary care
We wanted to know what people with learning difficulties felt about their experiences of primary care services. We commissioned our friends at Barnet Mencap to create a video where people could have their say and also be able to offer some advice to professionals working in primary care. This is just the short version. A longer version is also available. Please let us know if you would like to use this in your work.
