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.
