Changes to vascular services in County Durham
Together with Healthwatch Darlington, we are hosting events on behalf of NHS England about vascular services. The events are intended to provide patients of vascular services and members of the public with information about how vascular services will operate in County Durham and the changes that are happening.
In order to capture the experiences of patients who have used vascular services at University Hospital North Durham (UHND), NHS England have produced a survey to seek your views and feedback. The survey is available online or we can send you a copy in the post. Please contact us by phone or email if you would like a paper copy of the survey.
There will be six events held across County Durham and Darlington on the following dates:
- Thursday 17th January 2019, 5-7pm at Spennymoor
- Wednesday 23rd January 2019, 5-7pm at Stanhope
- Monday 28th January 2019, 5-7pm at Durham
- Wednesday 30th January 2019, 5-7pm at Darlington
- Wednesday 13th February 2019, 5-7pm at Consett
- Wednesday 27th February 2019, 5-7pm at Barnard Castle
In order to manage numbers and provide refreshments, we are asking that anyone interested in attending one of the events to please register your interest. We will advise you about the venue details when confirming your place. You can complete the online enquiry form or contact us by phone or email.
