Better Health Programme - engagement events


The NHS Better Health programme is holding a series of 17 public engagement events across Darlington Durham and Tees during May, to talk to patients and the public about how health services could be provided in the future.

The Better Health programme is looking at how local hospitals achieve the standards which local people have a right to expect from their services, and how the NHS meets its aspirations to provide more care in the home and in community based settings.

It is being led by clinicians including senior hospital consultants and GPs from the clinical commissioning groups and three foundation trusts operating across County Durham, Darlington and Tees.

Details of the 17 events and a background to the programme are available at and at or those interested can get in touch by
