Population health: joining the dots and recognising the opportunities
Population health is an increasingly clear and important priority for the health and care system and is key in addressing health inequalities. This is clear in the NHS Long Term Plan, in the 2022 Health and Care Act, and in the current and likely future policy landscape.
A population health-led approach to health and care aims to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across an entire population.
Whether you’re working in an integrated care system (ICS), primary care network, a national body, community group, or you’re someone with lived experience it is likely that you have been thinking about your own role in population health and how best you can help to improve the health and care of the people in your local area.
This event from the King's Fund will bring together those working in the NHS, public health, local authorities, the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, and local communities to consider how best they can join the dots between work that is already under way and how to support others in their efforts to improve population health.
