England’s health and care system is under immense pressure. With waiting lists for treatment exceeding 7 million and A&E performance at an all-time low, recovering NHS and social care performance will be vital priorities going forward. However, the long-term sustainability of the Service, and crucially the task of building a healthier, more equal nation, will require looking upstream. So many of the health challenges that grip modern Britain relate not to healthcare but to the circumstances in which we grow up, live and work.
To build a sustainable health and care system that delivers for all its citizens, we need to focus on how we can drive down demand rather than just meet it, and create health rather than react to illness. This will not only improve our health system, and improve the health of our citizens, it will also improve productivity and reinvigorate the economy.
Reform is delighted to host Andrew Gwynne MP, Shadow Minister for Public Health, to lead this roundtable and discuss Labour's vision for improving health and wellbeing outcomes through public health.
This roundtable is in-person, invite-only and will be held under the Chatham House rule.
