Description

The theme for our joint Healthwatch Newcastle and Healthwatch Gateshead conference is 'The whole me'.

Hear about recent research, including our findings and recommendations for special educational needs and/or disability (SEND) and care homes. With your help we will also look at our work priorities in Newcastle and Gateshead for 2017—18.

We are delighted to announce that Tommy Whitelaw will be our guest speaker at the conference. Tommy became a dedicated dementia care campaigner after caring for his mother for five years. Please join us to hear about Tommy’s powerful and moving experiences.

Registration is between 9am to 9.25am, with lunch and networking from 1pm to 2pm.

Please book your place by 24 March.
