Public invited to take a tour of unique self-care hub at Rochdale Infirmary
08 November 2019

BURY and Rochdale Care Organisation, part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, is inviting people to a free talk and tour of a new self-care hub at Rochdale Infirmary.

The talk and tour is taking place on Thursday 28 November, from 2 to 3pm.

The self-care hub is the first of its kind in the North West and aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people through supported self-care.

The self-care hub brings together cancer, long term conditions and mental health services, including local charities and voluntary organisations, across the Rochdale borough.

Experts at the hub provide support to patients with social and money issues, transport, as well as improved management of their long term health conditions. It is recognised that these issues can all affect how well someone feels.

The event will give people the opportunity to find out more about the services provided, meet the staff at the hub and see for themselves how the hub works.

Sharon Lord, programme lead at the Northern Care Alliance said:

“The self-care hub is committed to developing new joined up ways of working between health, social care and voluntary and community based services to support people to live healthier lives through understanding, engaging and being empowered in self-care. The hub is open to anyone who lives or works in Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, so if you feel you would benefit, please come and see us.”

The talk and tour will be held on Thursday 28 November from 2 to 3pm at the self-care hub, which is in the Damson Centre, Level C, at Rochdale Infirmary. 

All are welcome to attend the talk and tour event and to book your place contact Angela Greenwood on 01706 517302 or email membership@pat.nhs.uk.

The event is free and is one of a series of ‘Your Health Matters’ events arranged to give the public and the Trust’s public members a greater insight into their local hospital and the services it provides.
