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.
This session will be an interactive conversation between guest speakers and webinar participants.
- Dave Sweeney, Executive Director of Partnerships, Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership
- Alan Yates, Chair, Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership
- Richard Stubbs, CEO, Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network
