Faith Communities and Neighbourhood Care
23rd May at 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
The NHS Long-Term Plan, published earlier this year, places more emphasis than ever before on the importance of the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector (sometimes referred to as the Third Sector).
The Plan, and the new Contract for General Practitioners associated with it, looks to expand delivery of care at the neighbourhood level.
Blackburn Cathedral is hosting a one day event to understand the role faith communities can play in improving and sustaining health and wellbeing for local people.
Keynote Speakers are:
- Professor Dominic Harrison, Director of Public Health, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council
- Michael Crilly, Director of Social Inclusion and Participation. Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust
- Catriona Logan, Divisional General Manager for Community Services, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust
- Dr Mark Spencer, Fleetwood GP
We firmly believe that this will lead to positive and practical outcomes for the residents of Lancashire.
