Cumbria Rural Health Forum

The Cumbria Rural Health Forum was formed in September 2013 with a mission to maximise the health of rural communities through the discovery, creation, development and sharing of evidence-based strategies, best-practice, tools and techniques that support the effective and efficient delivery of public health, health and social care in rural areas. The forum seeks to achieve this by forming a network of organisations interested in and responsible for delivery of health and social care in rural areas.

The forum is looking to provide leadership and to work strategically in developing common themes around rurality to improve the quality and availability of healthcare services in Cumbria.

The first theme that the group has chosen to develop is digital technologies to support remote consultations, telehealth and telecare. The group will develop the Cumbria Strategy for Digital Technologies in Health and Social Care.
