All welcome for talk in Brockenhurst on ageing and living well

A New Forest GP will be talking to local people about how to stay healthy in their own homes at a special meeting at Brockenhurst Village Hall on Wednesday 21 June.

Professor Johnny Lyon-Maris, a partner at Lyndhurst Surgery, will be talking about healthcare in the New Forest and how people can stay healthy for longer.

The talk is part of a series hosted by NHS West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to involve local people in healthcare and hear their views about current and future services.

Professor Lyon-Maris said: “Health is a personal issue that affects us all.  Your local NHS needs your advice and comments on how you can help yourselves and your family stay as fit as possible. 

“We would like to share what the NHS has achieved for its frail patients and how the patient voice has shaped those decisions.”

Many local organisations and support groups will also be on hand to showcase their services and answer questions.

Professor Lyon-Maris will be able to answer your questions and talk about ageing and living well.

The presentation is at Brockenhurst Village Hall on Wednesday 21 June at 6pm and will be particularly useful for:

  • People who are interested in NHS care in the New Forest
  • Carers and relatives
  • Anyone who wants to know more about how to live well and safely at home

The event is the second in a series of Health Talks hosted by the CCG during 2017 to share important news about local health and care across its area, which includes Andover, Winchester, Eastleigh, Romsey and the New Forest.
