Well known local campaigner Andrew Jessopp will present the case for the newly formed Isle of Man Health and Care Associaton (HACA) at our second Public Meeting of 2012:
"Because your health matters"
7.30 p.m.* Monday 27th February 2012
A presentation by Andrew Jessopp
Manx Legion Hall, Douglas
Andrew Jessopp explains: “The HACA will be more than just a ‘patients’ association’ as it will adopt a ‘cradle-to-the-grave’ approach to all matters relating to our health and well-being.
So whether it is a child care, care of the elderly or a clinical issue the Association will take an interest and try to ensure the government and service providers - public or private - are providing the best quality service to the public.”
“Whilst the majority of the public who come into contact with health or care service providers have a good experience, unfortunately a significant number of people find the service a lot less than desired or acceptable. Regrettably, many of these people feel their concerns are dismissed and in some cases, that mistakes are denied or covered up and they have no-one to turn to for help.
The association will, among other things, help to highlight these cases and hopefully help to raise standards in the provision of services on the Island.”
Mr Jessopp will be delivering a fairly detailed Powerpoint presentation to the meeting after which there will be an opportunity for members of the audience to ask questions.
As usual, Admission is free - All are welcome.
* Do try to arrive early as a BBC film crew from 'Newsnight' (Scotland) will be present from 7pm seeking opinions on Scottish devolution from a nearby nation with its own independent parliament.
