People attending the event will be asked for their views on the Partnership’s key priorities for the next year, which include ‘Ageing well’, care navigation (the patient journey through health and social care), mental health, health and wellbeing and community engagement

Dr Atkinson says: “This event is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with the development of integrated services in South Nottinghamshire. I’m really excited to talk about our priorities with local residents and start involving them in our work.

“There has already been a lot of really innovative work that has started here in South Nottinghamshire that has improved services for patients, which has then gone on to be rolled out across other areas. We want to build on those successes and involve local communities to help drive further innovation.

“We really want to engage people so they are genuinely involved in how their local services develop and how we join up care. So, if you have the time and you want to get involved, I look forward to talking to you.”
