Help Aggie the Alien find her way around the NHS

Hillingdon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is asking parents, grandparents and carers to encourage children to enter a fun story competition, designed to get them thinking early about how to use NHS services.

The story revolves around Aggie the Alien who has come to visit Hillingdon with her family from outer space and unsurprisingly she has no idea about what the NHS is! She is looking for support and advice so she can look after herself during her stay on earth.

Dr Ian Goodman, Chair of Hillingdon CCG, said: “Behind the fun there is a really serious message about helping people to have a full understanding of all the wonderful NHS services that are available and when it is the right time to use each service.  You can find out about the full range of services on our website and it would be great if families could sit down together and to look and learn and discuss with their children which service they should use for their ailments.”

Children are being asked to create short stories, which will later be developed into a book that Aggie can use during her stay here. Based on these stories, the book will teach Aggie how to look after herself and how to use some of our local NHS services here in Hillingdon.

The lucky winners will be awarded with a signed copy of the "Help Aggie the Alien" book, presented by Paralympian gold medallist Natasha Baker at the INTU shopping centre in Uxbridge on Saturday 24th March 2018.

Children are encouraged to be as adventurous as possible!
