Have a say about how Health and Wellbeing services are delivered in Portsmouth

Voluntary, community and social enterprise groups have a crucial role in addressing health, care and wellbeing needs of our local communities. In a time of significant change for Health and Wellbeing services, now is an exciting opportunity to explore how we can work better together to strengthen our offer and how we respond to health and social care needs and opportunities.

Keynote address
