My Department works across HM Government to compile the annual report on rural proofing which is based on contributions provided by individual Departments in respect of the policy areas for which they are responsible. The Department of Health and Social Care leads on the provision of health and care services to rural communities and the report published on 3rd September describes the significant work being done to address issues of rurality in delivering those services.
