People in Cornwall will be among the first in the country to benefit from national changes to improve the way people can get urgent help for conditions such as broken bones, burns, sprains and strains.
There will be a chance to fly on a Cornwall Air Ambulance rescue mission, have your blood pressure checked or try out physiotherapy exercises at a Shaping Our Future event tomorrow (Wednesday 26 September).
A new £1m funding programme will see health professionals in Cornwall being able to ‘prescribe’ residents activities like volunteering, group learning, gardening, befriending, cookery, healthy eating advice and a range of sports to keep them safe, well and out of hospital.
On 18 June the Prime Minister set out a funding settlement for the NHS in England for the next five years. In return, the NHS has been asked to set out a long term plan for the future of the NHS by autumn, setting out our ambitions for improvement over the next decade, and our plans to meet them over the five years of the funding settlement.
One Vision, part of Shaping Our Future, is an ambitious plan to bring together all of the people and services that work with and support children and young people and break down the barriers that stop every each and every child from enjoying a safe and healthy lifestyle with equal opportunities to a brighter future.
