COVID-19 has both highlighted and exacerbated the enduring inequalities and deprivation experienced by many local communities. Now, as the focus shifts to the wider economic and social recovery, local health and care leaders are presented with significant challenges and new opportunities to proactively address these long-standing issues. In response, we have seen leaders from across systems and places come together in partnership to re-build a more inclusive economy and a better future for all.
To raise awareness and champion emerging practice, the NHS Confederation and NHS England and NHS Improvement are hosting two webinars to explore the role of the NHS for place-based economic recovery, optimising social value delivery and addressing local health inequalities.
On Thursday 17 September at 10am, join colleagues from the NHS and local authorities who are leading the way on creating and delivering practical approaches to delivering an inclusive economy; from the development of co-produced system-wide social value frameworks and measurement tools, to the role of the NHS and other organisations as anchor institutions in supporting beneficial change for people and places. Please come along to learn, share and discuss ideas, challenges and opportunities.
