Our ambition is to reach as many Somerset residents as possible to gain valuable insight for future planning and to showcase the amazing work which is happening across the ICB as well as across the wider Somerset health and care system.

How can I get involved?

We're coming to see you in your villages and towns. There is a list of events below that you can attend.

We also plan to attend smaller more local events such as diabetes super clinics and local cancer support groups.
