A multidisciplinary seminar, as part of the Kellogg Urban Knowledge Exchange series.
Is designing healthy communities the right response to an overstretched NHS?
It has been estimated by the NHS that obesity alone costs the service £5.1billion a year. With trusts struggling to cope with rising deficits, patient demand and widespread staff shortages, preventing people becoming ill has become a priority.
It’s an opportunity to design new homes and neighbourhoods to promote wellbeing and enable independence. But how do we ensure everyone can live a healthy life no matter where they live?
We have asked leading voices in the field to share their knowledge, research and pitch their views on the subject. This is the next event in our series examining key urban issues. It is certain to provoke some lively discussion.
