Health Creation Alliance is committed to the concept and practice of Health Creation as a means of reducing the widening gap in life expectancy between society’s richest and poorest. Health creation looks at the causes of the causes of ill health.
We believe it’s the single most important driver to change in the way we think about delivering care. There is just one month to go until our Action Summit which will provide a rare opportunity to “think big” and explore how we might drive a cultural reset in the NHS, looking at what keeps people well rather than continuing to focus on managing illness.
An audience of leaders and emerging leaders from across primary care and beyond, will enjoy a line up of inspirational speakers. These include: Lord Nigel Crisp, Dominic Hughes, Roy Lilley and Anu Singh.
