King’s Fund event on community-based health
October 9, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
The King’s Fund is pleased to announce a one-day learning event titled Community is the best medicine: making a reality of community-based health.
Taking place on Tuesday 9th October in London, delegates will be looking at the role of communities in health and care, examining how to create sustainable, community-based health and care, and sharing learning from areas where communities are taking a key role in improving and sustaining good health. Themes will include:
- Community development: where communities are strengthened so that they can improve their own health – or factors that affect their health – without necessarily relying on formal health and care services
- Community commissioning: where communities have greater control over the commissioning of health and care services and other services that affect their health
- Communities and service design: where communities are directly involved in the selection and design of services
- Community organisations: in pathways of care where the scope of services that the health system is able to provide is expanded, often to include those that support social, rather than medical, models of care.
The full day’s programme can be seen here. Plenary speakers include:
- Caroline Dinenage MP (Minister of State at the Department of Health and Social Care)
- Professor Jane South (National Adviser on Communities, Health Equity and Mental Health at Public Health England)
- David Buck (Senior Fellow at The King’s Fund)
- Dr Charlotte Augst (Partnership Director at The Richmond Group of Charities)
- Merron Simpson (Chief Executive at New NHS Alliance)
- Catherine Wilton (Director at Coalition for Collaborative Care)
