Join us for the next Locality Health and Wellbeing Network meeting. We will be discussing:

  • creating an action plan for a ‘community health service’ – how do we bridge the gap between clinical and community perspectives? With practical discussions on tackling barriers with contributions from local government, clinical and community perspectives
  • how local political leadership in transforming commissioning can drive local-systems change and improve health and wellbeing outcomes. Local government perspectives from Locality’s Keep it Local campaign.
