Tackling inequalities is of vital importance to improving health outcomes. Join top experts from healthcare, science and policy at this full-day conference, in partnership with NHS England.

Taking place at the Royal Society of Medicine in Central London, you’ll connect with the latest research and thinking on health inequalities, including at a networking event in the evening.

The conference will include key speakers and panel sessions in the morning. The panels will focus on the importance of the key clinical areas outlined in the Core20PLUS5 approach and the role of national organisations in reducing healthcare inequalities. In the afternoon there will be expert sessions, focusing on the five clinical areas of health inequalities and a session on prevention. These will be delivered by senior leads from NHS England and specialist leads from the Royal Society of Medicine.

This is a unique opportunity to network over drinks and a complimentary lunch with leaders in the tackling inequalities space, and specialists within the Core20PLUS5 medical sections.

Keynote speakers:

  • Dr Bola Owolabi, Director, Health Inequalities at NHS England
  • Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Professor of Epidemiology at University College London, Director of the UCL Institute of Health Equity

Core20PLUS5 is a national NHS England approach to support the reduction of health inequalities at both national and system levels.

A CPD certificate with 6 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the event. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the event to those who attend live.
