Gillingham Health Forum

A Community Health Forum Steering Group is well established. It is actively engaged in planning and promoting healthy living activities and events, for which we have Communities for Health funding, and is investigating ways in which the local community can engage constructively with the new Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group and Healthwatch. The group has now set up a local Patients Participation Group and is exploring ways of improving two-way communication between health professionals and residents. The Forum will have an important role in reviewing local health provision and feeding research into the Neighbourhood Plan.
