Professor Chris Whitty will be presenting his 2023 Annual Report: “Health in an ageing society”

This insightful and timely report clearly addresses the challenges being faced in communities across the Southwest. In a very approachable way, Professor Whitty’s report speaks directly to the general public, policy makers, researchers and the medical profession. He refers frequently to the peripheral, coastal and rural regions of the country where he says the NHS, social care, central and local government must start planning more systematically to meet ‘the inexorable rise of multi-morbidity’.  Primary and secondary prevention, delaying ill-health, increasing data collection on the health needs of older adults, are all cited, alongside recommendations for research for scientists and funders.

Join colleagues from a range of public sector, community and NHS organisations to hear from the Chief Medical Officer and then led by a panel of academic, medical and local authority experts to contribute to a discussion around how as a region we can tackle the statistics and improve the outlook for all our older residents.

Thursday 6th June, 09:00 – 11:00, Henderson Lecture Theatre, XFi Building, The Business School, Streatham Campus, University of Exeter
