The health and care system is in crisis with staff trying to address backlogs of care and the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, amid workforce shortages, financial constraints, and a wider cost-of-living crisis. But how can the system move away from this new normal to a different way of working?
Population health approaches offer the opportunity to move from a reactive system that treats people when they are ill to one that proactively addresses the impact of wider social determinants on people’s health and tackles the effects of health inequalities. Now is the time to start thinking differently about the health and care system.
At our in-person conference on Wednesday 18 October we heard from experts across the NHS, the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, people with lived experience and international speakers about how the health and care system can begin to make this shift and make the most of existing networks and expertise. We discussed why population health approaches offers a way to tackle health inequalities and improve the health of individuals and communities, while also providing solutions for a system under constant stress.
