How this event will work

You can visit stalls covering how services in Bexley are changing. Come and find out about:

  • Community-based care – local care networks, making best use of GPs, pharmacies and community support, self-care and managing on-going health issues
  • Urgent and emergency care – alternatives to A&E including GP hubs, out-of-hours doctors and pharmacy, apps and phone lines – Health Help Now and 111, rapid response schemes to keep frail older people and vulnerable young people out of hospital
  • Services for families – better support for asthmatic children, wellbeing initiatives for young people and enhanced mental health support for pregnant women and new mothers
  • Planned care – plans to improve quality of care and outcomes for patients needing services for long-term conditions such as asthma and cardiovascular disease
  • Mental health services – supporting community mental health services in line with initiatives to bring care closer to patients’ homes

You will be able to walk around these different areas and spend as much or as little time as you like finding out more information and asking questions.

At the end of the event a panel of local clinicians and experts will answer some of the questions raised during the session.
