Is a Health Creation Revolution underway in East Surrey? – 15 October 2020
A webinar for partners in NHS, local government and charitable sector plus all citizens interested in the health and wellbeing of our communities.
Lord Nigel Crisp has recently published a highly influential book which encourages us to “take off our NHS spectacles” and consider moving beyond the treatment and prevention of disease, to providing the conditions for all in our communities to be healthy. In his book, Lord Crisp calls for a new partnership between the NHS, government & the general public to build a healthy & health creating society, encompassing the need to urgently address health inequalities and threats to planetary health. Healthy Horley PCN have been building partnerships to implement this vision at the local level over the past year and we would like to share our progress.
We invited all interested parties across East Surrey to come together and see how we might develop this approach further to allow health in our communities to not only recover in the wake of COVID-19, but to flourish.
