 The future of the NHS, improving the quality and access to health services and supporting a healthier population all depend on a radical upgrade in prevention and public health strategies. NHS England recognises that more needs to be done to respond to the prevention challenge. The NHS Prevention Programme Board, which was established in January 2015, has made a strong start in getting serious about prevention. Evidence shows that by investing in early interventions greater costs can be reduced further down the care pathway, however, this approach requires joined-up care and treatment, often across a range of service providers, that is centred around a patient’s needs. Following the Five Year Forward View how will new models of care drive better outcomes for patients and for the health system?

Join us for the opportunity to learn about the key activities and priorities for responding to the prevention and public health agenda, providing strategic direction and oversight to stimulate national action on the wider determinants of health. The NHS Five Year Plan: Responding to the Prevention Challenge will give you the opportunity to build contacts and benefit from knowledge sharing and networking to respond to the prevention challenge.
