What you can expect if you sign up to “get involved”...

  • You will receive regular updates on healthcare, community news and issues
  • Occasionally, you may be invited to take part in projects, surveys and meetings that interest you, for example because they are taking place in your area, or because particular health matter is important to you. Participation is always optional

For a more hand's on involvement, we also have a Youth Engagement and Health (YEAH!) forum for those aged 14-18 years with a keen interest in health and healthcare who meet regularly and get involved in improving healthcare in the Ipswich & East Suffolk area. It is free to join.
