OPEN FOR BUSINESS

We are still 'open for business' at the RSN with all of our staff working remotely to stay safe. We will still be delivering our services to our customers, although we're having a little think about how to best enable our usual face to face meetings and seminars.

We are looking forward to chatting with you online! If you have a query please email admin@sparse.gov.uk and we will get back to you.

Stay safe!

About the Rural Health Care Alliance (RHCA)

WHAT IS THE RURAL HEALTH AND CARE ALLIANCE?

The Rural Health & Care Alliance is a membership organisation dedicated to providing news, information, innovation and best practice to those delivering and interested in rural health and care

The Rural Health & Care Alliance (RHCA) has been established through a partnership between the National Centre for Rural Health and Care and the Rural Services Network (RSN) and is affiliated to both the National Centre and the RSN.

Members will be kept informed of the National Centre’s activity and the related activity of the RSN on rural health and care and have the opportunity to influence both organisations’ work.

OUR CORE VALUES
  1. Seeking equity of health and care for rural communities
  2. Creating a strong, collective voice for those involved in rural health and care
  3. Raising awareness of the challenges faced in rural health and care

OUR WHY

We want to create a strong collective voice to draw attention to issues relating to health and care in rural communities. This voice is currently lacking – no such forum or alliance presently exists - we aim to change that.

Issues such as vulnerability, isolation and loneliness sit at the heart of our rural communities across the UK. With these challenges come the additional cost and workforce requirements of delivering effective services to improve healthcare outcomes for those living and working in these communities.

We will develop the Alliance through the sharing of information, case studies and best practice from the local to the global level. We will exercise influence right at the heart of policy making in the UK by engaging with decision makers and opinion formers through the partnership between The National Centre for Rural Health and Care and the Rural Services Network.

We believe rural people deserve a voice and equity of care.
