The Future of Public Health in England
27 November 2015 (All day)
Event Location:University of Salford
On the 27 November 2015, a conference will take place at the University of Salford, aimed at addressing the future of public health in England.
The transformation of public health in England has not been without its critics. There have been accusations that the transfer of responsibility for the improvement of public health to local authorities has in some areas led to public health funding dropping below an acceptable level as other issues are deemed more of a priority by local councils.
Delegates at The Future of Public Health in England conference will gain a comprehensive overview, from experienced public health experts and those most affected by the changes to public health in England, of the far reaching influence the Health and Social Care Act 2012 has already had. Delegates will also gain insights into the impact of the act is likely to have on the future of the day to day work of public health.
Delegates attending this conference will:
- understand new national standards for public health and retaining the statutory duties of the NHS and local government in respect of public health in 2015 and beyond.
- assess how to improve the lives of residents through joined up thinking and spending, leading to promotion of prevention in unhealthy lifestyles and effective public health campaigns.
- know how to transform the lifestyles of people in the UK by understanding the importance of public health.
- understand the role that local authorities play in the development of public health practices.
- learn to use a range of methods, to analyse where best to fund resources, in specific geographical areas that need priority action and addressing funding inequalities within their local areas.
- identify the need for an effective Public Health England which can combat all public health threats.
