Health inequalities demand an integrated approach

News that health inequalities are widening highlights the powerlessness of the NHS to tackle the issue alone. According to speakers at a forthcoming PCC event, there is a stronger imperative than ever for integrated care systems that involve health services, local government and the voluntary sector to work together to find lasting solutions.

The event on 16 June in Manchester will show how inequalities are experienced in different sectors – from women and children to homelessness, from sex work to end of life care. With speakers from the NHS, local government and public health, the event will explore the data and intelligence now available to help you understand and map the issues in your area, as well as the potential impact of social prescribing. It is aimed at chief officers, directors of commissioning and clinical leaders across the public sector. See our website for more information including details of the agenda or to reserve a place.
