Byron PCN has worked in partnership with Ashfield Council, local NHS, South Nottinghamshire PBP and local voluntary and community organisations to organise the event.

Dr Adam Connor, Hucknall GP and Byron PCN clinical director said: “Working across local services to support our residents is vital even at the best of times but with the cost-of-living crisis, and following on from the impact of Covid-19, it’s never been more important.

“As a primary care network, we recognised, along with other key local organisations, that we had an opportunity to put on an event that is open to our whole community to help tackle some of the issues that impact on people’s wellbeing.

“I hope that many of Hucknall residents can find the time to join us to find out more about the local support that is available and that by coming along to this event, you can access the help and advice you need to improve your health and wellbeing.”
