Event description

Covid-19 has shown how vulnerable society, our economy, and day-to-day lives are to illness, but despite this we have not valued the pivotal role of good health.

In this talk, former Chief Medical Officer for England Dame Sally Davies and public health doctor Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard will outline why health is truly our most untapped opportunity for prosperity and happiness in the 21st century, individually and jointly as whole nations.

They will explore how through collectively valuing health – civil society and the private sector – we can radically change the wider health environment while expanding the founding principles of the NHS. They will explain how the NHS should shift from a focus on illness to become a true health service, encompassing a National Care Service, and how this would pay off for all.
