Speak your mind in our video booth to help shape local health services

A video booth for young people to record  views on the ways they would like to get involved in shaping local health services will be at the Walthamstow Garden Party this weekend (15/16 July 2016). 

NHS Waltham Forest Clinical Commissioning Group (WF CCG) will use the booth to gather feedback from teenagers on how they may like to help design, or advise on how to improve, the health care they receive either from their GP, local hospital or community services such as talking therapies and sexual health. 

Young Advisors will be on hand to help anyone wishing to share their thoughts to camera. 

Dr Tonia Myers, Clinical Director for Children and Young People’s Services at WF CCG said: “We struggle to gather the views of younger people when we are looking for feedback on services or help with how they could be changed. 

“We hope that the video booth will be a fun way for teenagers to let us what we should be doing at the CCG to help them get involved in shaping the health services they use.” 

The booth will be located in the health zone inside Lloyds Park. 

While the garden party is open for longer, the video booth will be open between noon and 4pm only on both days.

Those leaving their views will also get a photo-card of themselves to take away. 

All the feedback given will go into developing a Children and Young People’s participation strategy for Waltham Forest.
