Babies, children and young people in an ageing population: where are they in your plans?

17 Jun 2021
B - Breakout stage 2
Health Inequalities

Over 30 per cent of the population is under the age of 25. Where is this significant part of the population in your plans?

North West and North East London Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) work collaboratively across primary, secondary and social care to achieve improved health outcomes not only for children and young people, but also for their families, reducing the inequalities that exist in some of the most deprived populations in England.

The session will be delivered by leaders from acute trusts Imperial College Healthcare and Barts Health, who will demonstrate how they work with other partners, primary care and the third sector to support the health and wellbeing of children and young people more holistically.

Packed with guidance and practical examples, this session will provide delegates with:

  • an introduction to the Babies Children and Young People's Transformation Programme, why it matters and how ICSs/regional teams can support leaders within the health care system to meet this challenge
  • an understanding of the benefits for acute trusts to work collaboratively with primary care (CC4C)
  • an insight into what a youth-centred primary care offer can look like and reflections on working with a housing association, including learnings from We Are Spotlight by Dr Helen Jones, which is currently being evaluated by the Association of Young People’s Health (AYPH)
  • a chance to explore the impact of adopting the Royal Society of Public Health Youth Champions Programme from Waltham Forest and how young people have become social prescribers in their communities.
