Westminster Health Forum

Developing Healthy New Towns and integrating services across housing, health and care

Morning, Tuesday, 5th June 2018

Congress Centre, 28 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will assess next steps for developing Healthy New Towns, and key issues for further integration of services across housing, health and care.


Delegates will consider progress on the Healthy New Towns programme in re-thinking the delivery of health and social care services around new housing developments, following the introduction of demonstrator sites, and with NHS England inviting developers to create a national network to prioritise healthy living.


It will also be an opportunity for stakeholders to engage with policymakers ahead of the upcoming social care green paper, with the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care recently confirming it will look at the role of housing.


The seminar follows publication of a report by Kings Fund and National Housing Federation on how Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) and integrated care systems (ICSs) should consider the contribution that housing can make to health.


Further sessions focus on how to utilise the built environment to tackle challenges around obesity, dementia and social isolation and next steps for improving housing quality to meet the needs of a changing population.
