Join the Patients Association on Monday 3 December for a free half day workshop on child health and information.

  • What is important to you when you need help and advice for your child?
  • Have you looked online when your child has been ill?

We would love you to come along and have your say. The session runs from 09:45-14:00 in Birmingham city centre. Lunch and travel expenses are provided.

Many people access information about health and care online, but it sometimes can be misleading and difficult to separate out the facts. This is especially the case when it comes to child’s health, which can be a particularly stressful time.
