How we can work together to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Tameside and Glossop? You're invited to the event on Wednesday 27 March 2019, 11am - 3pm at Curzon Ashton, Richmond Street, Ashton Under Lyne, OL7 9HG.

Research highlights that as little as 10 per cent of the things that keep us healthy and well are related to the health and care system. Where we live, the connections we have, our economic status and our lifestyles have a far greater influence on how healthy we are. In addition to this, we know that a growing population of people with long term conditions means that a small percentage of the population are accounting for a significant percentage of health and care activity. To tackle these issues, a modern health and care system must work collaboratively with people and communities to improve wellbeing, with each recognising and harnessing the other’s strengths – this event will showcase some of the work currently taking place across Tameside and Glossop as well as provide inspiration for some of the ways we can change the way we work. 

The event will focus on:

  • Social movement and working differently with people and communities – what happens when health becomes people powered?
  • How supporting around the wider determinants of health can improve outcomes and reduce activity across the health and care system
  • The importance of supporting people to manage their long term conditions and how we can embed this as central to the way we work

This event is for people working within health and care, the voluntary and community sector, the wider public sector, commercial organisations and members of the public. 

You will learn about some of the amazing work taking place across Tameside and Glossop as well as take inspiration, and contribute to how these approaches can continue to become a bedrock of the way we work.
