Kent Health Watch is on the road this month to talk health and social care, and will film what people have to say. The dates have been set for when people can visit each of the seven Gateways, to learn more about Kent Health Watch and to share their opinions. Visitors will have the chance to be interviewed to talk about local issues on health and social care for a video diary. The completed film will show the highlights from all seven visits and will be broadcast on Kent.gov.uk in March.
Kent County Council Cabinet Member for Public Health Alan Marsh will be joining the events. He said: "The aim of Kent Health Watch is to improve standards in health and social care by listening to what people have to say. "By travelling around the county, we will be able to talk face to face with people to see what issues are important and where. This is another way of finding out what is affecting the people of Kent."
"Kent Health Watch is open 24/7 and there is a caring person at the end of the phone every day of the year, including Christmas Day. In February we will be able to listen to your comments and complaints in person. So come along and tell me how we can make a change for the better."

• Monday 8 February – Maidstone. Gateway from 1pm to 5pm
• Thursday 11 February – Ashford Gateway from 1pm to 5pm
