There will be an update on Shaping Our Future (the NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plan for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly) from Andrew Abbot and Tracey Lee from NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group. The Shaping Our Future plan is about improving local health and wellbeing, the quality of local health and care services, and the financial stability of the health and care system in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Preventing ill health and more care at home are at the heart of the five year plan. The Shaping Our Future team will listen to feedback about the latest plan and hear about any local priorities and concerns.

Tim Dart, Environment Growth Officer, at Cornwall Council will be coming along to talk about Cornwall’s ‘Environmental Growth Strategy'. Produced by the Isles of Scilly Local Nature Partnership and Cornwall Council this aims to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to work together to increase environmental, social and economic prosperity in Cornwall.

At the meeting there will be an opportunity for local residents to ask any questions they may have.

Chris Wells Chairman of the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel and a Truro City Councillor said: “Everyone is invited to attend the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting. January’s meeting is a really good way for local residents to find out more about the future of health and care in Cornwall which affects all of us. Environmental growth - creating conditions to encourage more habitats and species is also on the agenda. Come along and find out more.” 

The Truro and Roseland Panel meets bi-monthly to discuss matters that affect the local area. They progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners; including town & parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services. Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.
