Strasys “Thinking Differently” Webinar Series

Can the NHS address health inequalities?

Narrowing health inequalities

Date:  3rd September 2024
Time:  12:30 – 13:45 (UK)
Location:  Virtual


Our next webinar will discuss the growing issue of inequalities and how it relates to the productivity, workforce, and NHS agendas.

There is a belief that the NHS because it addresses ill health, is the right organisation to address health inequalities. Hospital business models are designed to accept, assess, treat, discharge. So is the NHS the right institution to sustainably address health inequalities in communities, towns, cities and the nation? The current policy approach is addressing the symptoms – health inequalities – and not the causes – the social determinants of health inequalities.

This webinar aims to debate the wider determinants of health inequalities – Education, Economics, Environment, Community and Culture. We will consider the opportunity for NHS providers to rethink the skills, capabilities and capacity needed to take action.

We will cover

  • How to target the cause – action to narrow health inequalities
  • Data collection – what do we need to collect
  • What skills, capabilities and capacity do we need to build the business models
  • Real-life examples from around the world
