On Wednesday, the BBC Local Democracy Reporting Service will be giving people in North Wales the chance to put questions on health to the region’s leading patient advocate. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Geoff Ryall-Harvey is chief officer of North Wales Community Health Council (CHC) – an independent body tasked with holding Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board to account. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

He has a wealth of experience representing the interests of patients across the region and in his equivalent, previous role looking out for the rights of service users in Cheshire. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

This Wednesday, he will be available for 30 minutes to answer your questions regarding your treatment and how to use the health service during the Covid-19 pandemic. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Mr Ryall-Harvey is particularly worried about people not accessing services when perhaps they should be. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

If you have a question about accessing care, if you’re worried about cancelled appointments or unsure what to do regarding treatment then email: and we will try and put your question to him. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

We will then release the video later on Wednesday with a summary of the best questions and answers. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
