An online meeting for people to have their say on the care and service of ambulance services in the South West will take place this month. 

South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) is encouraging members of the public to take part in their next Patient Participation Panel meeting to share their views in a bid to help shape the service for now and in the future. 

The first of three meetings will take place via Microsoft Teams on Friday, April 12 between 10am and 11.30am. Future meetings will be held on the second Friday of August and December.

Deane Hill, patient engagement manager at SWASFT said: “We are always looking for ways to improve the care and service we provide.

“We want to collect views (positive and negative) to help influence informed changes and make the services we offer better for our patients.

“If you have the time to donate just 90 minutes, to share your views with our team, you would make such a difference to your local community, to the service we provide, and to the way we engage with our patients.”

The online meetings are optional, and people can drop in and out as time allows.
