Would you like to help shape your Barnsley health services?
Are you interested in helping local services provide the best care to pregnant women and young families? South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is looking for 100 Barnsley people who would like to become Pregnancy and Early Year Champions.
Working on a voluntary basis, people interested will be given training and the opportunity to give their opinion on what is good about local health services and what could be improved.
To find out more, there will be an event on Thursday 31 October 10am – 4pm at the Barnsley Metrodome, Queens Road, Barnsley. People will be invited to ask questions and there will be number activities on offer for children and families including crafts, dance sessions and information stalls from a range of local pregnancy and children’s services.
The Barnsley Pregnancy & Early Years Champion Project, provided by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, is supporting local people to work alongside health care practitioners from a range of settings to improve services and tackle health issues.
Steven Michael, chief executive said, “We really want to encourage people in Barnsley to get involved and help others make positive lifestyle changes with the support of health services available to them. Being a Pregnancy & Early Years Champion is a great way of helping to improve local health services whilst boosting your own confidence and self-esteem.”
