Allerdale Borough Council organises summit to address health issues in the area 

15 October 2014

Allerdale Borough Council, in conjunction with NHS organisations in Cumbria and Cumbria County Council, will this week hold a summit to address important health issues across the area.

Taking place at the SEN Facility at Lakes College West Cumbria this Friday 17th October from 9am to 1pm, the health summit will bring together key partners who are able to work together to make a difference to the health facilities in Allerdale.

The event will be chaired by Colin Cox, Cumbria Director of Public Health and there will be a range of speakers including Councillor Alan Smith, Leader of Allerdale Borough Council, who initiated the health summit.

Other speakers will include representatives from Cumbria County Council’s Public Health Team, NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group, North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, and the Third Sector.

Key subjects under discussion will be the current state and recent changes in public health in Allerdale, the role of the Cumbria Health and Wellbeing Board, health inequalities in Allerdale, the role of the Third Sector, the Cumbria Local Health Economy Strategic Plan, Out of Hospital Developments, and the Redevelopment of West Cumberland Hospital.

Councillor Alan Smith said: “For health improvements to be made within Allerdale, we must build closer working relationships between relevant partners and our communities. This summit will be the first step in that process and will help us to identify what our health inequalities are, the challenges facing us and help us find new ways of sustainable working.”

The Allerdale Health Summit is open to members of the public but, due to limited space, anyone wishing to attend must confirm with Kath Evans at Allerdale Borough Council on 01900 702658 or email
