Rural Related Politics - An RSN weekly review

In a programme of four short debates in the House of Lords on Thursday 23rd February, the House of Lords will consider Rural Health as one of the topics. Members scrutinise the delivery of health care services in rural areas at 2pm, in a debate proposed by Baroness McIntosh of Pickering (Conservative). The House of Lords library has some information ahead of the debate, including information provided by the Rural Services Network. You can access that at this link.
We will update you next week on the key points of the debate.
