Mr Geoff Ryall-Harvey, Chief Officer for NWCHC said “We have worked alongside the BCUHB Speech and Language Therapy Services to make sure that people have a say in the way that the services are developed in North Wales.

Our engagement events will take place in a number of locations across the region, providing an opportunity for people to tell us about their experiences of the services. It is vital that we present the feedback and suggestions of all those who use Speech and Language Therapy services to those who make decisions and policies”

Mr Ryall-Harvey went on to say “The events will be structured around a number of aspects such as compliments, concerns and complaints, care planning, care provision and communication. We understand that in some instances, people might wish to share experiences in a more confidential way and we will ensure that there is an opportunity for such discussions to take place privately”.
