​Wakefield residents will get the chance to ask questions to the Council’s key decision makers about issues that affect the district during a live Q&A on Facebook.

Wakefield Question Time will take place on Monday 23 November at 12pm where Council Leader, Cllr Denise Jeffery, will be answering questions about Covid-19 and the mental health and wellbeing of residents.

Cllr Jeffery will be joined by Deputy Leader, Cllr Jack Hemingway, Cabinet Member for Adults, Health and Wellbeing, Cllr Faith Heptinstall, Director of Public Health, Anna Hartley and Jo Webster, Chief Officer at NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group.

All people need to do is put their questions in the comments section on the live stream on Facebook and the panel will answers as many questions as possible during the one-hour session.

​Cllr Denise Jeffery, Leader of Wakefield Council, said: “It is so important to look after our health and wellbeing at any time, but particularly as we are in the midst of another lockdown, and the huge impact this has for many people.

“That’s why we have picked this particular theme for this month’s Wakefield Question Time, as we want people to get in touch so that we can let them know about all the help and support that is available. There is no need to struggle alone, we are there for you.

“If you have a question, please tune in and we will answer as many as we can. I look forward to hearing from our residents once again.”

Jo Webster, Chief Officer at NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “I am pleased to have been invited to join the Wakefield Question Time panel on a subject which is vitally important during the pandemic – our mental health and wellbeing.

“There is a range of services available across the district to help support you or someone you care about. We want as many people as possible to take part in this event so we can help people access the help and support that they need.”
