Background for today’s event, along with Anita Myfanwy, Children in Wales who will explore Poverty and how it impacts on rural communities in North Wales.Funded by RHIF, Welsh Government – a £1million 3 – year fund established by Minister Edwina Hart set out to find innovative approaches to improving integrated service delivery in health across rural Wales.Around 15 projects funded to develop new and innovative models addressing rural health issues.Third sector in partnership with some of them but also 3 third sector specific projects.As coming to end of programme invited to share learning from projects across Wales. 3 events – this is one of them. An additional legacy of ALS…

Published late 2009. So I mentioned about the Rural Health Fund – this document was the strategy behind it. Set context of Rural Health in Wales and need for change. It also identified three key themes to underpin the diverse range of issues identified.Access – improving access to services across the spectrum from emergency to routine services;Integration – Integrated service models, workforce planning and systems are necessary to improve future service provision and ensure the effective use of all resources and skills within the communities;Community cohesion and engagement – This is an important resource and is of immense potential to rural and urban settings. Community cohesion, engagement and ownership needs to be a key element of service planningWe will be visiting these three key themes through our workshop sessions today.Innovation Fund work:Regional development sitesLocal innovation projects – check which ones in North Wales! Sioned’s workResearch and sharing the learning
Does using the work rural help with designing and delivering services? Access/Int and Community Engagement can be applied equally to rural and urban areas…?Talking to Rural Research Scholar Stephanie Best to define rural for me as I was doing this presentation and I am no expert.She said ‘everyone has a different definition’…Read through Stats.OCED (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) uses a population threshold of fewer than 150 persons/sq kmOffice of National Statistics defines populations of less than 10,000 as rural;Deep Rural Project defines places that are over thirty minutes drive time from a settlement of ten thousand people. But suggested that it is partly cultural and that really it is down to whether ‘someone feels they are in a rural area or not’.
One of the learning objectives from today was to share the learning from the three third sector projects…A handout on the three projects in your packs.I wanted to share a slide highlighting all the project that third sector orgs have been involved with but won’t fit on so please visit this weblink to find out information. Interestingly Stephanie Best, mentioned to me that one of the key learning points from projects where that the ones that were multi-agency teams, involving third sector organisations, worked best.3 projects – only £4,000 funding each, however each have completed work that is now being developed further in their local areas.
Key objective of project:Identify transport needs for patients who do not qualify for non-emergency transportResources could be better utilised and patient journeys increased.
Our Mid Wales Rural Health Event will continue to build on the work of this project – with a dedicated event with national organisation and action learning set to follow.
Funded opportunity for those interested to participate in an Action Learning Set exploring challenges in rural health service delivery over the coming months – I will revisit at end of day…
