Health Event – The Future of Health in Rushcliffe

Posted by: castlehcp - Posted on:

27th June 2024, Cotgrave Welfare Club Entertainment Centre, 2-6pm


Hold an event for up to 100 people registered with Rushcliffe GP practices to engage in improving their health & wellbeing, to help build resilience to local services, help vulnerable individuals, and encourage greater involvement in the future of health in Rushcliffe including through joining Patient Participation Groups.


We have an urgent challenge as a Rushcliffe community to reverse the damage that COVID has caused to some of our most vulnerable residents, and our local services. We know that we can achieve great things together if we take action, as there are many local examples of where local action has transformed the lives of vulnerable individuals living in Rushcliffe. Our plan for achieving better outcomes and services for the most vulnerable involves the whole community, drawing on the knowhow and strengths of everyone who can make a difference, no matter what their role or background. It’s not about relying on the NHS or the council to do it for us but doing it with us. Those of us that can need to make a choice to get involved in wider community activities for the sake of the Future of Health in Rushcliffe e.g. by volunteering with a local group. By getting involved, you can help ensure that Rushcliffe remains a great place to live and thrive for everyone locally.


A blend of talks, stalls, discussions and Q&A. Event will be recorded for on-demand access post event.
