Improving Public Health: working in partnership

The Barbican, London

Note: Early bird rate available on this event until June 15th

The public health white paper 'Healthy Lives, Healthy People' was published by the Department of Health towards the end of 2010 and set out the government's long-term vision for the future of public health in England. Directors of public health, now employed by local authorities and jointly appointed with the new 'wellness service', Public Health England, will lead on driving health improvement locally. A focus on joint working ? encouraging collaboration for health and wellbeing ? is vital. A strong partnership between the NHS and local government is essential if further improvements in healthcare, social care and public health are to be delivered.

Improving Public Health: working in partnership will offer insightful and practical sessions on what is being done now, with lessons to be learned for all.

Speakers include:

Professor Geof Rayner, Professor Associate in Public Health, Brunel University
Mike Farrar, Chief Executive, NHS Confederation
John Wilderspin, National Transition Director for Health and Wellbeing Boards, Department of Health
Chima Olughu, Public Health Programme Manager, NHS Greenwich
Paul Stonebrook, Physical Activity Project Manager, Department of Health
Paul Jarvis, Strategic Lead for Sport & Health, StreetGames
