‘And the Doctor Said….’ uses creative writing as a method for exploring people’s experiences of healthcare in north Staffordshire.
People took part in workshops at community venues, which were led by writers, playwrights and storytellers. Participants shared stories, reflected upon, and wrote about their healthcare experiences. The workshops are documented on the project website and the writing will also be shared in a book and an exhibition that will tour community venues from December 2013.
