Patient, Carer and Family Forums

We hold regular forums across our area in Eastbourne, Polegate, Seaford, Hailsham, Crowborough, Newhaven, Peacehaven, Lewes, Uckfield, Mayfield and Heathfield. The meetings last 3 hours and include a light lunch. For catering purposes, please book to attend by emailing: anne.sabine@nhs.net or phone 01323 819908.

The forum is open to all Sussex MSK Partnership East patients, their families, friends and carers. By January 2018, around 350 patients had attended 31 forums. What happens in the forums? These are good opportunities for you, as a patient, to tell us how we are doing and to make suggestions on how we can improve. We also ask forum members to act as sounding boards on a wide range of musculoskeletal topics from shaping future services to the detail of looking at our letters and posters to make sure they are useful. We genuinely want your opinions and have acted on the advice given in our meetings. If you would like to contribute your ideas or views, or to request an invite to future forums, please feel free to contact us by email: sussexmskeast.enquiries@nhs.net. or phone: 0300 300 0003.
