Dear Friends

The next seminar in the series will be on Wednesday, 7 March 2018, between 3 – 5 pm at Ludlow Methodist Church, Broad St

We hope very much that you will be able to join us. Do please also ‘spread the word’ as this is an imoprtant topic for everyone in Ludlow and South Shropshire

 Rod Thomson, Director of Public Health Shropshire, will speak on:

Health and Well-being in Rural Communities, the Local Government Association and Public Health England Report, 2017.

The report is available on-line and can be down-loaded here.

 Joyce Brand and I have identified  issues in the Report that we have requested Rod should to try to address in his talk. We thought it might be helpful to let you have sight of these issues prior to the seminar, page numbers indicate where these issues may be located in the report.  You can download our comments  here.

As we have worked on the preparation for the seminar we have become even more aware of the importance of our population being well-informed and being involved in the thinking behind the policies of the local NHS and the LA.   We hope that this seminar will be helpful with our thinking and our activity.

Joyce Brand and Jane Robinson
