At our recent meeting on 25th April, we welcomed Ruth Abbott, Healthy and Sustainable Homes Service Manager and Jumaila Hussain, Corporate Director of City of York Council with responsibility for Adult Social Care and Integration.



Our recent Open meeting on Monday 21st February featured Professor Mike Holmes from Nimbuscare and Emily Douse from Healthwatch.

The main discussion centred on GP services, the vaccination centre at Askham bar and dentistry services in the York area. A lively debate highlighted the need for more investment in GP services where 85% of NHS public interactions take place from only 7% of the NHS budget. Further efforts are being made to increase the availability of NHS dentists to overcome the long waiting time for appointments.
