Tackling health inequalities: the need for urgent action

May 8 - May 9

£150 – £355

Many people recognise that both the NHS and the health of the nation are in deep crisis. Whether in terms of life expectancy, levels of long-term ill health, inequalities, mental health, or the drivers of poor health such as obesity, England’s recent record is poor and often compares badly to its neighbours. Essentially, there is now a need to think differently about how to design and deliver health and care services to meet the challenge of reducing health inequalities.

This two-day virtual event will bring together individuals and teams who have been working on shaping, informing and implementing strategies and action plans to address health inequalities at system, regional and place levels. Ahead of the upcoming general election, sessions will also provide an opportunity to discuss and explore the need for urgent action and policy change for the new government to improve population health and implement measures that help people to make healthier choices.

Showcasing both international and domestic case studies, this conference will also explore how the health and care system is working in partnership with local authorities, the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector and community leaders to develop a collaborative approach to health inequalities that makes the most of local assets and networks and meets the needs of local communities.
