VCSE Briefing on Health and Social Care
Today we launch our first ‘VCSE Briefing Note on Health and Social Care’, which you can download here.
The briefing explains the changing health and care environment within North Yorkshire. We hope the information will help voluntary groups and charities better understand the new health and care structures, and, with time, some of the new opportunities which may flow from them. The briefing also includes reference to an article that focuses on mitigating the wider health effects of the Covid-19 pandemic response and explains how social distancing has had an impact on some cohorts of people.
Also this week our VCSE Health Partnerships Manager Dewi Winkle has been at the NHS England Voluntary Sector Conference along with Mark Hopley, Head of Community Support who attended as the Humber Coast and Vale VCSE representative for North Yorkshire. Our next briefing will provide a summary of the learning from the event.
Future briefings will be found on our Voice and Representation page.
