The Health and Social Care Forum ran until April 2011. The forum was open to all voluntary and community organisations in Camden with an interest in health and social care. It aimed to improve the quality of life for Camden residents by supporting and strengthening the sector’s input into the health and social care agenda. An important part of the forum’s work was keeping local groups informed about the health and social care issues that affect them and their service users. VAC will continue to post health and social care news here on this webpage and also has a page dedicated to health and social care issues where we post information, briefings and good practice guides that groups might find helpful.
