Viewpoint at Herts Pride 2017

Viewpoint had a stand at this year's Herts Pride festival.

As well as giving our information about Viewpoint, we gave out information on keeping well, a mindfulness CD, LGBT* and mental Health and Drug and Alcohol services in Hertfordshire.

The day was really positive. We were welcomed with smiles, rainbow face paint, stickers and positive affirmation cards and a great day was had networking and talking to participants at the festival.

We also managed to see a few of the acts and there was some fantastic singers including Kane Coxhall, a Dolly Parton sound alike and many other great acts / singers!

Fantastic - see you all next year!

Your views on urgent care services in West Herts

Urgent Care Services in West Hertfordshire

As demand for urgent health care services - both locally and nationally - continues to increase, Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group is undertaking some work to look at ways of making sure that we provide a model of care in the future that effectively meets the needs of the people using these services.  These services include A&E, urgent care centres, minor injuries units and so on. 

We want to make sure that we get patients, the public, patient groups and others involved at an early stage to ensure that we can build their views and experiences into any future proposals. 

To kick this off we have developed a survey asking some questions about your experiences of using local urgent care services and want to encourage as many people as possible to complete it.

We are promoting this in a number of ways and are seeking survey responses to be completed by Friday 24 March 2017
