Dozens of people took part in a workshop to have their say and help shape the future of healthcare in the district.

More than 50 residents took part in the Health and Wellbeing in Outer South Leeds workshop, which was organised by Leeds City Council.

The event took place at the Rodillian Academy in Lofthouse on November 30 and included an introduction to the current health and wellbeing strategy.

People took part in group discussions and looked at refreshing the current strategy, which includes plans to help people live longer and healthier lives, and quality of live could be improved by better access to services.

Participants also discussed the sustainability of communities and involvement in decision-making processes.

Coun Lisa Mulherin, champion and executive member for health Wellbeing and adults, said “We wanted people to have their say and those who attended the workshop took a really positive approach, focussed on what we can do in our communities together.”
