Together We’re Better Chair tours local community hospitals

The Independent Chairman of the Together We’re Better partnership of NHS and local government organisations in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent has been out and about this month visiting community hospitals in the north of the county.

Sir Neil McKay has spent the past few weeks visiting Leek and Cheadle community hospitals in the Moorlands, and Haywood and Longton hospitals in Stoke-on-Trent. He will be visiting Bradwell Hospital in Newcastle-under-Lyme in early May.

As well as receiving a tour, Sir Neil has also been meeting with campaigners at each hospital to listen to their views.
