People living and working in Lancashire are invited by North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to share their views and experiences of our 999 emergency ambulance service, patient transport service (PTS) and NHS 111 service as part of a community conversation event.
Whether you’re an interested member of the public, NHS professional, carer, patient, or healthcare champion, we want to listen to and learn from you. We are hosting a series of events across the five counties of the North West (Cheshire, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cumbria and Lancashire) to meet and talk to people who use our services.
Our determined staff continue to care compassionately for Lancashire’s residents whilst the NHS faces ongoing challenges, particularly with hospital handover delays. We have seen how in recent times, our healthcare needs have changed and, as both an emergency service and an NHS trust, we’re looking at how we can adapt and improve.
With this in mind, we are checking in with people in our communities to discuss how effectively we deliver our 999, PTS and 111 services, ensuring we have the right resources in the right place at the right time, to perform to the high standards our patients expect.
The community conversation for people in Lancashire will take place on Thursday 23 November 2023, 13:00 – 16:00, The Grand Venue, 2 Harrison Street, Blackburn, BB2 2JE.

During the event, you will hear how we help thousands of patients who need urgent and emergency care every day and what to expect as the NHS heads into winter and beyond. You will help us to understand what’s important to people in your area by sharing your views and experiences in fun and interactive activities. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions to frontline staff and senior leaders.
Free lunch and refreshments will be provided for all guests.
