THE Bucks Free Press welcomed a new pup-reporter to its team this week – who’s had a busy summer heading up the new county healthcare campaign.

You may recognise Alfie from the latest Healthwatch Bucks promotion video – where he can be seen getting his teeth stuck in to a copy of the BFP.

The campaign was launched recently to encourage people to give feedback on health services in the area.

Healthwatch Bucks – which is part of community impact Bucks – is a not for profit organisation which aims to improve local healthcare on behalf of residents. So far the campaign has reached 185,000 people – but Healthwatch is hoping even more residents will join in to have their say.

This week, Alfie took charge at BFP Towers, with the newshound turning his paw to editing the paper - barking orders at the team. You can see Alfie in his starring role and learn more at
