Westminster Health Forum

Next steps for reducing health inequalities in England - population-based healthcare, local implementation and opportunities for innovation

June 2019

This seminar examined the next steps for reducing health inequalities in England - focusing on practical issues for population-based healthcare, local implementation and opportunities for innovation.

It brought together stakeholders and policymakers to discuss the way forward for system-wide collaboration to increase healthy life expectancy in England and to close the life expectancy gap between the richest and poorest in society, with discussion on the inequalities experienced by specific population groups and a focus on homelessness, ethnic minorities and those with mental health conditions.

Attendees looked ahead to the publication of Health Equity in England: The Marmot Review 10 Years On, scheduled for February 2020 and assessed the lessons learnt since the original review.

The agenda included discussion on delivering the key elements outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan and delegates considered the impact of system redesign on prevention and public health including the opportunities for Primary Care Networks and Integrated Care Systems to reduce health inequalities through pooling resources and integrating services.

Attendees also explored 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.
