Former Chief Medical Officer Sally Davies and epidemiologist Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard join us with a vision of total healthcare to take us from the post-COVID world into a better future.
The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that health has dominated our news cycles since early in 2020, and the dependency of the global economy upon the health of its citizens has been laid bare. The prosperity and happiness of communities and nations has been devastated by illness, and the fragility of society has been clearly revealed. Worse still, the glaring inequalities in lived experiences have translated into shocking differences in survival rates among different communities.
Former Chief Medical Officer for England and Senior Medical Adviser to the UK Government, Sally Davies and Imperial College Epidemiologist Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard join us to argue that is time to rethink how we value and address our health in a complex and interdependent world.
In this livestream event, Davies and Pearson-Stuttard will outline why health is essential to achieving prosperity and happiness in the 21st century, individually and jointly as whole nations.
They will outline how a 21st century healthcare system should expand on the founding principles of the NHS. It should shift from a focus on illness to become a true health service, encompassing a National Care Service. It should leverage the digital technology innovations harnessed in other industries. It is only through collectively valuing health – civil society and the private sector – that we can radically change the wider health environment, which will pay off for all.
Davies and Pearson-Stuttard explore the entities and processes that could underpin a new total health system, one that could serve to take us into a happier and more prosperous future.
