Shaping Health and Social Care Events

Shaping Health and Social Care Events

In November there will be further opportunities for our population here in East Sussex, to share views and ideas about how health and social care services are delivered in our county. East Sussex Better Together is our 150-week programme to transform these services and is led by the three local NHS clinical commissioning groups and East Sussex County Council.

 

We will share more information about these events in due course but please do share this information with your networks – whether they are friends, relatives, patients, service users, carers or anybody else.
