Local GP invites South Notts residents to discuss health and care priorities at partnership’s ‘Community Voices’ event

Dr Nicole Atkinson, Clinical Lead for South Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) covering Broxtowe, Gedling, Hucknall and Rushcliffe, is inviting people who live in those areas to join her at a digital event to discuss priorities for health and care in the area.

The event, which will take place on Zoom between 3pm and 5pm on Thursday 1 October, will be led by Dr Atkinson, who also works as a GP in Eastwood

The South Nottinghamshire ICP works across health and care organisations, local councils and communities to support the integration of services and help local people live happier, healthier lives.

Interested residents and health and care workers in the area can sign up at: https://south-notts-icp-community-voices.eventbrite.co.uk

Alongside Dr Atkinson, there will be a presentation from Dr Tim Heywood, Broxtowe GP and Clinical Director of Nottingham West Primary Care Network.

People attending the event will be asked for their views on the Partnership’s key priorities for the next year, which are:

  1. Ageing well
  2. Care navigation (the patient journey through health and social care)
  3. Mental health
  4. Health and wellbeing
  5. Community engagement

Dr Atkinson says: “This event is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with the development of integrated services in South Nottinghamshire. I’m really excited to talk about our priorities with local residents and start involving them in our work.

“There has already been a lot of really innovative work that has started here in South Nottinghamshire that has improved services for patients, which has then gone on to be rolled out across other areas. We want to build on those successes and involve local communities to help drive further innovation.

“We really want to engage people so they are genuinely involved in how their local services develop and how we join up care. So, if you have the time and you want to get involved, I look forward to talking to you.”
