Health and Care Community Forum... Launching soon!
There are numerous community and third sector groups linked to health and social care working throughout our area. The pandemic led to new networks being formed and showed the importance of coordinated action between communities, the council and health board, and it is felt that it would be beneficial to coordinate communication and action through a new Community Health and Care Forum which will feed in to the new QI Partnership group that is being formed to succeed the Sir Lewis Ritchie Implementation Steering Group.
Aims of the Forum
*To be an open and accessible community forum for communicating key information and updates around health and Care in our area.
*To work in co-production to achieve the best possible health and care services for the people who live and work here
The Health and Care Community Forum will work alongside the QI partnership and will create a space for community members to come together, keep each other up to date on progress, share information and decide together on key questions, feedback or challenges to be passed onto the QI Partnership which will meet quarterly.
The forum will be chaired by Maggie Cunningham and will launch in March 2022. Invitations have been sent out to current community volunteers, community members who have been interested and following the process for the past 5 years as well as community councils, trusts and third sector community groups with a focus on health via e-mail.
