COVID-19 has exposed and exacerbated the health inequalities that have long existed in our society. As convenor of the Inequalities in Health Alliance, the RCP is clear that recovery from the pandemic must be a turning point for the health of our population.
This hour-long event will be an opportunity to understand what action the government must take to reduce health inequalities. We’ll also discuss what the NHS, its teams and individual clinicians can do about these disparities.
Jo Bibby, director of health at The Health Foundation, will share early findings from the Health Foundation’s forthcoming publication about the specific, coordinated actions that must be taken across government to reduce health inequalities.
It will also be an opportunity to hear from the health inequalities director at NHS England/Improvement, Dr Bola Owolabi, about what the NHS, its teams and individual clinicians can do about these disparities.
There is a groundswell of support for the government to act on health inequalities. To speak to this growing momentum, we will hear from UK chief policy director at the CBI Matthew Fell and the CBI’s lifescience and healthcare policy adviser Jake Harrison will join the panel for the Q&A.
This is the second event of our What is the pandemic teaching us about… series. You can catch up on What is the pandemic teaching us about workforce planning? now.
