The Edge Hill University Medical School held a celebration and consultation event  on 20th June 2018 for the many healthcare providers and commissioners who supported its development. This network of supporters will be vital to the achievement of the School’s aim to develop a new generation of doctors who understand the needs of the local communities and can respond to, and drive forward, new models of care.  The focus of the event was how we can work together with those who deliver healthcare as well as those who receive care, in our local region to achieve these aims.

More than 50 people attended the event from 10 NHS Trusts, GP practices, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Health Education England as well as representation from local councils and patients.
