The UK is facing significant challenges in terms of the health of the nation and the impact that has on wellbeing and quality of life. Whether through problems of increasing obesity, addictions, mental health issues or an ageing population; better health policies, funding and support will be key to improving quality of life.
This event will explore the contribution that planning and transport can make to health and wellbeing and highlight the need for greater strategic integration nationally and collaboration locally. The event will cover the policy perspective along with sharing examples of planning for health and wellbeing and case studies such as the NHS "Healthy New Town" Bicester.
