Lynda Robertson, Chair of the Somer Valley Area Forum, said: “This is the Forum’s first meeting of 2024 and we’re looking forward to receiving the latest news from local health care providers. Forum meetings are open to the public and we would be delighted to welcome any interested residents. They will have an opportunity to ask questions, give their views or just listen.”
