The special My Health Matters event, held on 2 December, was intended to promote and encourage better physical and mental health for people with a learning disability in Barnet. It was an opportunity for providers and family carers to learn about new services in Barnet as well as some COVID specific support.

If you missed the event, you can now watch it in full on the Healthwatch Barnet YouTube channel.
