In his 2017 lecture at the Kings Fund, Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health, University College, London, and President, World Medical Association, asked, “what good does it do to treat people and send them back to the conditions that made them sick?”
We heard from two organisations working in non-traditional ways with the NHS and community organisations to improve health outcomes.
The session provided case studies of local, place-based and systemic strategies working with the NHS and voluntary and community organisations to deliver high impact solutions by tackling some of the social determinants of health. Speakers also provided practical suggestions of ways funders can work with the NHS and community organisations to maximise the impact and effectiveness of interventions on health outcomes.
Presenters were Matthew Smerdon of The Legal Education Foundation, an independent funder supporting a programme of work on developing a national strategy for health justice, and Emily Dyson-Hawkes of IVAR, an independent research institute coordinating the “Building Health Partnerships” programme which facilitates the co-design and co-production of health services, delivered in partnership with Social Enterprise UK, NCVO and The King’s Fund and jointly funded by NHS England and the National Lottery Community Fund.
