Growing Health Together is holding a series of webinars to support the establishment of place-based collaborative partnerships for prevention and health creation across East Surrey.

The first four webinars are being held in collaboration with C2 Connecting Communities and will offer an introduction to building health-creating partnerships with communities to reduce health inequalities. T

About this Session

Chaired by Dr Richard Wright, Clinical Director of North Tandridge PCN, this session will offer an introduction / update on the Growing Health Together programme, followed by a celebration of some of the fantastic initiatives that exist outside of the health service to support health and wellbeing within East Surrey. This is sure to not only inspire, but also challenge those of us working within primary and secondary care to connect more effectively with the huge health assets on our doorsteps.

The session will include Q&A and opportunities for small group discussion within break-out groups.
