COME TO THIS ZOOM EVENT

Book your place here – zoom address to be sent to registered attendees by email before the event

This Weaving Trust event will help BAME communities and MK health service providers to understand better the issue of fair access to health services.  It is hoped this will lead to new opportunities for understanding, collaboration and perhaps action to improve the way things are.

What will happen?

6pm   Welcome from Kurshida Mirza of Truby’s Garden Tea Room and two short stories of ‘why I am here’

6.10   8-10 people from BAME communities meet with 8-10 health service providers in a carousel of one-to-one conversations about ‘what I like about living/working in MK and what I find difficult’

7.10   Share ‘surprises in what you heard’ (these are recorded)

7.25  Set up small group to meet and develop priority issues for potential action.  Everyone write in Zoom Chat one action s/he will take as a result of this evening’s Weaving Trust event.

7.30   END

Outcome

It is hoped that all participants will enjoy this event and feel more confident relating to MK people they don’t know and some will go away ready to take action to improve delivery for BAME communities of health services.
