Book now to attend our National Rural Conference, (in association with the CCRI), in Cheltenham on 3rd & 4th September) here. The keynote speaker for the conference is the Rt Hon Lord Foster of Bath, Chair of the House of Lords Select Committee on the Rural Economy.
Broadly, its stated aims are to: enable everyone to get the best start in life, help communities to live well and help people to age well.
The plan focuses on prevention as a way of reducing financial pressures on healthcare, after Health Secretary Matt Hancock made prevention one of his top three priorities during his first speech in the role last year.
Critics have said that focusing on prevention does not give enough weighting to environmental factors or the health impacts of deprivation.
