Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 6:00 PM - Tuesday, June 19, 2012 at 7:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Better together? The role of co-operation in public health
This debate marks the AGM of the Pioneer Health Foundation, which exists to promote a pioneering experiment that ran from 1929-1950 and set out to create the conditions in which all people could flourish, known as the Peckham Experiment.
Much has changed in society and health since the Peckham Experiment closed its doors in 1950, but many of the challenges remain the same. As we enter a period of austerity and severe cuts to the public provision of health, the debate will examine the potential for a co-operative approach to transform public health, and for the kind of holistic approach inspired by the Peckham Experiment and alive in Bromley-by-Bow today to create the conditions in which all can flourish.
- David Boyle, fellow of nef (the new economics foundation) and author of the Human Element has been at heart of the effort to introduce co-oproduction and time banks to the Britain, he will outline why a co-produced approach to health matters;
- The Equality Trust, whose research has highlighted the devastating impact of inequality on health will outline why we need a new approach to tackling inequality;
- Rob Trimble, the chief executive of the Bromley-by-Bow centre will describe the co-operative processes at the heart of Centre's work, and the inspiration he takes from the Peckham Experiment.
Chaired by Ruth Potts, Trustee of the Pioneer Health Foundation
The debate will start at 6.00pm with space for the collaborative development of new co-operative approaches to public health.
