PEOPLE living in the Vale can have a say on the Ambulance Service at a Vale Co-Creating Healthy Change Forum meeting on Wednesday, September 17.

The free event, organised by Co-Creating Healthy Change Project at Diverse Cymru, will be held at Pioneer Hall, Beryl Road, Barry, from 10.30am to 1pm.

The forum aims to bring people together, find out their views on health, wellbeing and social care services, and to link them with the organisations designing those services.

Shelagh Maher, from Diverse Cymru, said: “We are really pleased that the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust will be at our meeting to hear the views of our members. We want to find out what is important to people about the Ambulance Service and hear about their experiences.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the forum, particularly minority ethnic groups, carers, disabled people, lesbian, gay and bisexual people, older people and transgender people, as people from these backgrounds don’t always have their views heard on the services they receive.”

No special knowledge or experience is needed, refreshments will be provided and expenses will be offered for travel and replacement care costs - including child care.

To book a place at the forum, or to find out more about the Co-Creating Healthy Change Project at Diverse Cymru, call Shelagh Maher on 29 2036 8888, or email
