About the event

Guest speakers for Wednesday 30th August 10.30 am

Martin Boffey, the new Leader of Horsham District Council (HDC).

The political leadership of HDC has changed after 24 years, from Conservative controlled, to Liberal Democrat. We will ask Mr Boffey what surprises he had when he and his fellow party councillors took over, what plans they have for the future of our District and, of course, your questions. Due to limited time, if you have a specific question you’d like answered, please email them to us.

Tom Goodridge, Sussex NHS - Public Involvement Lead for West Sussex,

Forum meetings have raised concerns about online NHS services and how to access them through mobile phones, computers, and tablets. The main concerns are what happens if you don’t use a computer or mobile phone? What services are or will only be computer/online in the future? Please let us know before the meeting if you have a specific question you’d like answered. Tom will also update us on the latest developments in our local health services, GP surgeries, vaccinations etc.

Linda Clinton, Roundabout Talking News

Do you know about a weekly audio recording with news, information and articles from the West Sussex County Times read by volunteers, supplied and delivered free to the visually impaired? This is a much-appreciated service by those who use it, and many more visually impaired people would love to have this service if they only knew about it.A regular quarterly meeting of the Horsham District Older Peoples Forum. The Forum acts as the 'eyes and ears' for local older people and carers. It allows for raising issues and freely expressing views and concerns. The Forum can, where appropriate, raise those issues and problems with the relevant people, authorities and organisations or look to create a project to tackle the issue.
