Wednesday 27th May 2:30pm: "A health service for a post-coronavirus world"
Talk and question and answer on the NHS by Steve Dent.
The UK now has the highest number of Covid-19 deaths in Europe. Political misjudgements in the early days of the pandemic have compounded underlying problems caused by years of underfunding, mismanagement and fragmentation of the NHS.
Coronavirus is a game changer, not just for us as individuals but for the future shape of our health services. What lessons can we learn from this pandemic? How can we build a sustainable health service and a healthier nation?
Worcester Green Party member Steve Dent spent 20 years working for the British Medical Association, representing doctors in negotiations with government ministers, senior civil servants, chief executives and medical directors. Over that time he built up an extensive knowledge of the way the NHS works, its strengths as well as its vulnerabilities. In this talk, Steve sets out his vision for a post-coronavirus health service.
We will send zoom meeting details a few days before the talk.

A chilled out afternoon with 5 fantastic performances from Worcestershire based musicians, hosted by Tor Pingree. This event is in aid of Worcester Foodbank.
Food banks across the UK have seen a massive spike in demand due to the pandemic. We want to do what we can to support our local food bank and community. Monetary donations allow food banks to stay open, supply food to those in need and create related programs to further help poor and homeless people.

Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
