New Report: Health & Wellbeing in Rural England

Thanks to David Syme for highlighting this report which was published on 11th March 2017.

It offers a comprehensive view of the challenges and positive aspects of accessing and providing rural healthcare in England.

The report mentions eight key ‘health risks’ of rural areas:

  • Changing population patterns
  • Infrastructure
  • Digital access and exclusion
  • Air quality
  • Access to health and related services
  • Community support, isolation and social exclusion
  • Housing and fuel poverty
  • Employment and under-employment

There will of course be similarities between the issues raised in this report, and communities elsewhere in the UK and beyond.
