Watch our online AGM and Review of the Year

Thanks to everyone who came along to our online AGM last week. We hope you enjoyed hearing about our work over the last 12 months, and also from our guests from Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, who spoke about accessing healthcare via digital means, assuring quality of consultations, and what the future holds.

The event can be viewed below. There is still time to ask a question – about our work, about digital access to services, or anything to do with local NHS and social care services. Get your questions to us by 30 October; we will publish all questions and answers here in the next few weeks.
