NHS Five Year Plan: Responding to the Prevention Challenge

  • Tuesday, 22 March 2016
  • The Royal National Hotel, London
  • 08:30 - 16:30
  • Overview

One year on since the NHS Five Year Forward View was published, the roadmap for change is taking traction with new initiatives and projects helping to secure the future of the nation’s healthcare system. The NHS Five Year Plan: Responding to the Prevention Challenge conference will explore how to make the NHS sustainable by incentivising and supporting healthier lifestyles. A key element at the heart of the 5YFV is prevention of long term conditions and promotion of good health and wellbeing. Our agenda aims to support the NHS and wider health economy, at a local and national level, to build a more proactive society, prioritising health and wellbeing and reducing the impact of lifestyle related health problems.

The future of the NHS, improving the quality and access to health services and supporting a healthier population all depend on a radical upgrade in prevention and public health strategies. NHS England recognises that more needs to be done to respond to the prevention challenge. The NHS Prevention Programme Board, which was established in January 2015, has made a strong start in getting serious about prevention. Evidence shows that by investing in early interventions greater costs can be reduced further down the care pathway, however, this approach requires joined-up care and treatment, often across a range of service providers, that is centred around a patient’s needs. Following the Five Year Forward View how will new models of care drive better outcomes for patients and for the health system?

Join us for the opportunity to learn about the key activities and priorities for responding to the prevention and public health agenda, providing strategic direction and oversight to stimulate national action on the wider determinants of health. The NHS Five Year Plan: Responding to the Prevention Challenge will give you the opportunity to build contacts and benefit from knowledge sharing and networking to respond to the prevention challenge.

"The Obesity Challenge: Prevention is Action"

 

The UK is facing a health crisis related to poor diet. One third of our children, two thirds of adult men and just over half of adult women are overweight or obese. Diabetes levels have doubled in the past two decades and more than a quarter of five year-olds have tooth decay from eating sweets, sugary foods and drinks . Nutritional guidance in early life should be a key public health prevention strategy if we are to improve the health of the next generation.
