Invitation to Public Health Lecture

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Invitation to Public Health Lecture

Public Health Lecture of Professor David Croisdale-Appleby OBE, PhD, FAcSS, HonFCSFS, HonFAcadMEd,

Thursday 13th February 2020, 5.15pm arrival for a 5.30pm start, RBG008 Lecture Theatre, Worcester Riverside Building, Hylton Road, Worcester, WR2 5JN

It gives me great pleasure to invite you and your guest to the Public Health lecture for Professor David Croisdale-Appleby OBE, PhD, FAcSS, HonFCSFS, HonFAcadMEd, on Thursday 13th February 2020 at the University of Worcester.

Professor David Croisdale-Appleby holds a number of Ministerial Appointments in the field of health and social care, and Professorships at a number of Universities. The former Chairman of Skills for Care and the National Skills Academy, he currently chairs the Royal College of Physicians, Dementia UK and the Public Health Advisory Committee and Social Care Advisory Committee at NICE, and is the Non-Executive Director of Health Education England with responsibility for the Quality of Medical and Clinical Education nationally.

The lecture is entitled ‘Integration of Health and Social Care: the Hunting of the Snark!’

A year after the government announced its Long Term Plan for the NHS and a few months since it announced the Interim People Plan for the NHS, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships and Integrated Care Systems are working throughout England, to integrate Healthcare and Social Care by bringing together the NHS, Local Authorities, primary care and the voluntary sector in local areas.

The University of Worcester has invited Professor David Croisdale-Appleby to provide an international perspective on integration and an informed independent view of how this is working and evolving.  Professor Croisdale-Appleby will show some of the benefits integration is bringing in other countries and will identify some of the challenges to be overcome if integration is to be a success across England.  Professor Croisdale-Appleby will also discuss some of the challenges and priorities on our expenditure to address the problems of the future, and understand that integration is about how patients and the public experience care, not about merely coordinating its delivery.

I do hope you will be able to join us. Please RSVP by Wednesday 5th February 2020 to Deborah Sabbato at, or by calling 01905 855546.

Best Wishes

Liz Davies-Ward
