A free lecture exploring the issues around the healthcare system is taking place on Wednesday, 1 October.
Primary care is a jewel in the NHS crown but systems of healthcare have been unable to keep pace with the growing complexity of health and illness needs today.
The World Health Organization argues that we should view health as a ‘resource for daily living’, but we lack a clear account of how to redesign our systems to support a goal of improving health over controlling disease.
How can we fix things for the better? This event will invite you to pitch your solutions.
The lecture called ‘My doctor makes me sick’ starts at 6pm and will take place in the Isla Gladstone Conservatory, Stanley Park, Anfield. For directions, please visit: http://www.liv.ac.uk/media/livacuk/publicpolicypractice/Isla,Gladstone,Conservatory,directions.pdf
Professor John Ashton from the UK Faculty of Public Health will be speaking alongside Dr David Geddes, Head of Primary Care Commissioning for NHS England, and Dr Iona Heath from the Royal College of GPs. The event will be chaired by Dr Roger Phillips, Presenter at BBC Radio Merseyside.
The event is part of this year’s Policy Provocations debates – a series which brings together perspectives from leading international, UK and local thinkers to provide a platform for public debate around big policy challenges shaping our future.
