Release date: 10 October 2018
Some of the workforce opportunities and challenges facing health and social care organisations will be discussed at the West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board this week.
The board will also receive a presentation on the challenges facing informal carers – such as family members and friends who provide care for loved ones and explore some of the support to help family and friend carers of our local residents.
The board brings together councillors, leaders from the NHS, social care, local councils and the voluntary sector to work together and provide leadership to improve the health and wellbeing of local residents as well as reduce the gap in health and wellbeing between communities.
It provides a forum for challenge, discussion and the involvement of local people.
The board will also hear from Crawley Borough Council about some of the work it has been carrying out on dementia, as well as an overview of some of the wider health issues affecting residents in the town.
The meeting will take place at the Ashurst Room, Charis Centre, Town Barn Road, Crawley from 2pm.
