Integrating health and planning at a local level
Join this webinar to find out what was learned about integrating health and planning locally from the Healthy New Towns programme.
NHS England’s Healthy New Towns programme brought together housing developers, local authority planning and public health teams and the NHS to work towards the creation of healthier communities.
The places where people live, work and play have a significant impact on whether they are in good health. Illness caused by poor housing is estimated to cost the NHS £1.4 billion a year in first-year treatment costs alone.
The Healthy New Towns programme worked with 10 ‘demonstrator sites’. These developments ranged from 900 to 15,000 homes at different stages of the process, with diverse health needs, levels of income and inequalities.
What was learned about how we can better integrate health and planning at a local level?
This digital event will give you insight into the programme and practical knowledge from one of the demonstrator sites. This will include how they established a common language between partners to understand one another’s priorities, and how they ensured that health, wellbeing and social connections are prioritised in the planning and design of places.
