Health and care experts are asking residents and patients in and around Ottery to have their say at the town’s first Health Matters event.

Ottery Health and Care Forum is holding two drop in sessions next Friday (June 29) encouraging those living in the Coleridge GP practice area to discuss issues and meet volunteer and organisations about care and support available in the local area.

The forum is working with a range of partners for the event which will take place at The Institute which will run from 2pm to 5pm and 6pm to 8pm. Refreshments are available.

Leigh Edwards, vice-chair of the forum, said: “We really need to hear from you about what’s important to you, what you think the challenges and priorities are to improve health and care for people in our community now and in the future, plus your experience of the services and support you receive or have received.

Please don’t miss this rare opportunity to provide your feedback directly, identify any gaps in services and to influence future health, social care and wellbeing provision in your district.”

The forum is looking to put on transport for those who need assistance, running from 2.30pm to approximately 4pm, covering Talaton, Payhembury, Feniton, Alphington, Ottery, Rockbeare, Whimple, Newton Poppleford and Tipton St John.

Those needing transport will need to register by calling 01404 812268 or 01404 814889 before Wednesday.

The forum is working in partnership with RD&E, Coleridge GP’s, NEWCCG, Devon County Council, East Devon District Council & Ottery St Mary Town Council.
