Rural Health Conference 2017

"Prevention through Participation: A Whole Population Approach to Improving Health Outcomes"


Demands are increasing on health and social care services across the UK, often as budgets are tightening. These circumstances, coupled with the distinctive difficulties rural healthcare providers face, make for a uniquely challenging environment. The pressure on hospitals in particular is unmanageable in the current context of healthcare supply and demand. 

Now more than ever we need strong leadership and collaboration across the public sector to reduce demand on acute care services and deliver better health outcomes for more citizens. 

But how should agencies across the public sector be working together to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow? How can citizens be empowered to better protect their own health?

This one-day event provided the opportunity to learn from some of the brightest minds in the health sector.
