Join us at our next Forum meeting to find out how technology can be used to ‘help people live well, receive information, support treatment when they need it and make choices about how their care services are provided’. North Yorkshire Health and Wellbeing Board is developing a strategy which will provide a 10 year plan of how technology can be used to help organisations work together to provide an integrated approach to services.
There will also be a presentation by Rachel Durrett (Harrogate and Rural District Clinical Commissioning Group) prior to a Summer engagement event focusing on community mental health services for adults and older people in the Harrogate District.
