THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar is bringing together stakeholders and policymakers to discuss the way forward for system-wide collaboration to increase healthy life expectancy in England by five years by 2035 and to close the life expectancy gap between the richest and poorest in society, outlined in Prevention is better than cure.
The agenda includes discussion on delivering the key elements outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan, which commits to setting specific, measurable goals to reduce health inequalities and allocates funding worth over £1bn for areas with the greatest need.
The seminar also follows the recent publication by Public Health England of Quality in public health: a shared responsibility, which sets out a new framework for public health services - including steps to improve quality at a local level, working collaboratively and priorities for utilising technology to deliver improved health outcomes.
Attendees will also discuss what good public health services look like, the key issues for incentivising prevention-focused healthcare and the next steps for overcoming barriers to collaboration for local partners in the NHS, local authorities, the third and voluntary sector, industry and wider public health partners.
Delegates will discuss what further steps might be needed to tackle health inequalities, such as challenges around budgets and financial constraints, workforce and training, and adapting services to an ageing population.
Further sessions focus on initiatives at a local level to tackle health inequalities and the link between health inequalities and the local economy - including the impact of the London Health Inequalities Strategy and the Northern Health Science Alliance Health for Wealth report.
Discussion will also look ahead to the publication of Health Equity in England: The Marmot Review 10 Years On, scheduled for February 2020, and delegates will assess the lessons learnt since the original Review.
