A Theory of Everything for the NHS
Wed 21 June 2017, 12:30 – 14:00 BST
David Seedhouse is a Professor of Values Based Practice, the CEO of the Values Exchange and a Visiting Professor at the Universities of Derby and Western Sydney University. Professor Seedhaouse will deliver a seminar entitled "A Theory of Everything for the NHS".
The NHS constitution contains many principles, values and ethical codes, but offers no definition of health. Drawing on three decades of research and writing about the nature of health, David Seedhouse will explain how this single oversight has caused massive fragmentation and inconsistency of care.
Professor Seedhouse also offers a powerful solution – a theory of everything for the NHS which unites the best clinical practice with the most thoughtful ethical reflection.
