The Public’s Health

2020health favicon 512

20/20health’s focus began in 2006 on Making Health Personal, sharing information and understanding and building opportunities in health and wellbeing to enable people to thrive.

The parallel policy narrative, espoused by many stakeholders in healthcare, was to ‘put the patient at the centre’, is still there, but the pandemic has shown that this is still an aspiration, and all too frequently trumped by other calls.

We intend to continue prioritising people’s needs, creating opportunities for their priorities to be heard and ensuring robust evidence that supports personal control and the wider public’s health continues to be heard.
