Rural Health and Social Care

Gillian is an Officer of the All Party Parliamentary Group that aims  to develop evidence-based policy recommendations for the government on the rural health (both mental and physical) and social care economy of England. Current models are not suited to rural areas with sparse populations and a disproportionate number of over 85s with comorbidities including isolation and other mental health problems.

The group hears from a range of professionals such as doctors, nurses and pharmacists to the voluntary sector to NHS England and Ministers to work towards making health care work better for rural communities.
