About this event

Healthwatch Assembly

Health inequalities are unfair and avoidable differences in the health of people across social and population groups and can affect people’s health and their access to health and social care. The COVID pandemic has highlighted health inequalities as never before, and there’s a broad consensus that ’something should be done’. We want to make sure that as many people in the community are involved in conversations about health inequalities and that we know what the NHS and social care are doing to address them.
 
At our assembly event on 29th September we’ll be looking at an exciting project called the Ethnicity and Mental Health Improvement project as an example approach to tackling inequality in health (read more about the project here).

Ethnicity is a topic which many find difficult to talk about and it ethnicity exaggerates patient experience issues in mental health. If change can be achieved here, it can create understanding about what affects people’s experience. Professor Sashidharan from Glasgow University will be telling us more about the approach.
 
We will also hear an update on what health and care organisations are planning to do to develop our services and tackle health inequalities as they update their joint ambitions under the Wandsworth Health and Care Plan.
 
We’ll be holding the event online by Zoom and it will start at 1pm.
