The impact of COVID-19 will reverberate throughout communities on a previously unimaginable scale, requiring sustained action from national and local leaders across every sector. Through the NHS Reset campaign, the NHS Confederation is looking beyond the immediate health response to COVID-19 to understand where and how the NHS is actively supporting our nation’s critical local economic and social recovery.
Together with the Health Foundation and CLES (Centre for Local Economic Strategies), this webinar will explore the increasingly important role of NHS organisations as anchors in their local community. The UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) defines an anchor institution as one that, alongside its main function, plays a significant and recognised role in a locality by making a strategic contribution to the local economy. Given our scale, reach and purpose the NHS is one of the most important anchors in the community and has an important role in mitigating the impacts of the COVID-19 recession. We will hear from experts on where and how NHS organisations are working to support the local economic and social recovery and the partnerships that matter. This webinar will complement a strategic overview of the shape of the economy with practical examples of where our sector is making a difference on the ground.
During the event, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions of our speakers and engage in discussions with other delegates. Please send any questions ahead of the webinar to firstname.lastname@example.org
