Surrey Heartlands Population Health Summit 2023
The event on 21st March gave us an opportunity to promote a local understanding of population health and bring the underlying ideas to life with case studies and breakout groups, linked to the delivery of the Surrey Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
We were excited to welcome over 100 colleagues from across our partnership to the first Surrey Heartlands Population Health Summit on Tuesday 21st March 2023 in Epsom.
We discussed how the concept of population health management can help address the challenges facing some of our priority populations and think about how our ICS partnership needs to evolve.
As well as amazing colleagues from Surrey Heartlands, we were delighted to be joined by some external speakers who will help us to understand the challenges and opportunities that are being addressed across the country.
A huge thank you to those who came to the summit and made such a positive contribution to improving our understanding of this important concept.
