Salford Clinical Commissioning Group's Citizen and Patient Panel Event took place on Wednesday 19 July at The Lighthouse Venue in Eccles.
The day began with a sparkle as the Ordsall A Capella Singers took to the stage getting the event off to an energising start. It was then down to busy with agenda items including an update on the new Salford Birth Centre, based at Ingleside in Oakwood Park, Swinton.
The former residential home is owned by Salford City Council is currently undergoing refurbishment to reopen as Salford Birth Centre early next year. Following the opening of the centre, it is hoped that it will also become a community hub for the area also offering antenatal and postnatal clinics and classes, sessions on hypnobirthing, infant feeding support and a range of complimentary therapies.
Dr Tom Tasker, Chair of Salford CCG, said: “I think it’s an important day in our calendar as we chat – and importantly listen – to the people who can shape the feel and look of health and social care in Salford.”
