Learn more and chat to experts on the future of healthcare in Rushcliffe

Residents registered with Rushcliffe GP practices are invited to learn more on the future of healthcare in the area in a dedicated event on the changes and exciting advances already underway to local health and wellbeing services.


‘The Future of Healthcare in Rushcliffe’ event takes place on Thursday June 30 at Rushcliffe Arena from 1pm to 4pm, with residents able to book their free place here and get their questions answered.  

You can hear and chat more with local GPs and other health and care experts, meet local voluntary sector groups, Rushcliffe Borough Council and fellow residents to hear more on the shared vision for the future of health in the area.  

The event aims to enhance knowledge of health, wellbeing and resilience for individuals and local services and how patients and residents are equal partners to the service provided by the NHS.

The event will also outline how the services will be delivered in a sustainable way aligned to the environmental commitments.

The event is similar in content and style to the recent ‘The Future of Healthcare in West Bridgford’ event which took place in April and those who attended are asked to allow others to access this latest event due to limited numbers.
