Join our workshops – have your say on the future of healthcare services

A series of interactive NHS Future Fit workshops will allow people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid-Wales to help shape how their healthcare is delivered for the next 20 years.

Local people can make their voice heard during eight workshops at a range of locations and times throughout August and September. To attend, please book a place by clicking one of the dates below and registering where indicated.
