NHS St Helens CCG TALKFEST Engagement Sessions


NHS St Helens CCG is pleased to announce that their TALKFEST engagement sessions are back beginning w/c 26th July 2021.

This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the TALKFEST events will take place virtually using Microsoft Teams and they have also set up a freephone telephone number so that anyone who isn’t able to use Microsoft Teams is able to dial in and listen.

They will be holding two events, a morning and an evening session, to enable as many people as possible to join:

  • Tuesday 27th July 6:00pm
  • Thursday 29th July 10:00am

TALKFEST is a community engagement initiative, and its purpose is to inform local communities about changes and developments to health and social care in St Helens. They also use it as an opportunity to engage with local communities about various topics and listen to views and feedback from those who use their services.

The topics at these sessions will cover:

·         COVID-19 update from Public Health

·         Preparing for Autumn and beyond

·         Communities update from Halton and St Helens VCA
