2020health Report Working Together

Promoting work as a health outcome as the NHS reforms.

The aim of the research:

Building on our last research, we worked with four shadow Health and Wellbeing Boards using employment as an example to highlight ways in which they, employers, health services, Public Health Directors, charities, the public and Local Authorities could translate national-level policy objectives intended to promote work as a health outcome into local action and achievement.

Impact:

• Employment has been included in the top five priorities for some English HWBs.
• Compliments the work undertaken by Dame Professor Carol Black at the DWP
• 2020health invited to share their findings with the DH National Primary Care commissioning Network and have attended events with Dame Carol to promote the importance of work for health.

This project looked at the practicalities of the new Health and Wellbeing Boards working together with the new Clinical Commissioning Groups, as well as with established Public Health departments, employers, charities and the public. It sought to highlight ways in which employers, health services, Health and Wellbeing Boards, Public Health Directors and Local Authorities could translate national-level policy objectives intended to promote work as a health outcome into local action and achievement.
