People have been invited to give their views on local healthcare issues at this year’s patient revolution conference.

The event, which returns to Clare Town Hall on Wednesday, July 15, will give residents the opportunity to raise their concerns, as well as make a difference to the planning of local healthcare services.

Since its inception four years ago, the conference – organised by West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – has become an annual event.

Ed Garratt, the CCG’s chief operating officer, said: “The event will use an ‘open space’ technique, which means there is no set agenda.

“It’s up to those people attending to set the topics for discussion, which gives everyone the opportunity to talk about the health issues that really matter to them.”
