The Covid-19 pandemic has served up an unprecedented challenge to health and care services across the globe. The intense pressure on the National Health Service and the accelerated changes to policy, systems, organisations, and of course the mental health and well-being of the general public has forced us to consider how our health system can be future-proofed to minimise the impact of similar events. 

Over the past 12 months, there has been an acknowledgment that the pandemic poses a heightened risk to those who have poor mental and physical health, the elderly, and those who live with a diagnosed long-term condition. 

The health of our nation is complex. The determinants of health are ranging - most are social, not medical. This must be addressed at different levels - systems, society, communities, and in our very own households. 

This webinar will discuss and build on new and existing agendas. How do the leading organisations plan to provide better access to support and joined-up services, whilst working with people who live the experience, after all, they are the experts and should be central to how services are designed and delivered. 

Join us, join in and let's make the difference.
