Gorleston engagement report March 2022

In March 2022, Healthwatch Norfolk engaged with members of the public in the Gorleston area. This took place at Gorleston Library, Shrublands Medical Centre, and online in a local community Facebook group. As a result, 47 pieces of feedback for nine different service providers were collected.

The main areas we heard about was the difficulty of obtaining NHS non-emergency dental appointments, the difficulty of securing a GP appointment, and access to mental health services.

I was left in agony for almost three weeks due to the lack of NHS dentists and no dentists being available.
