Doctors in Deprivation Training Day Tuesday 27th June 2023
Join us at our annual education event where we will give Primary Care staff the tools and knowledge to provide an environment in your workplace where everyone has the best chance of living a healthy life, regardless of their circumstances.
The pressures on Primary Care have increased year on year, and there is no sign of this stopping, especially in areas hit the hardest by the pandemic lockdowns, and the rise in cost of living. Amongst talk of “levelling up” and targets to “reduce health inequalities” – what is it we can actually do?
We will explore the challenges faced by those working in areas of deprivation and disadvantaged communities and share the hopeful work organisations in Greater Manchester and beyond are doing to reduce health inequalities and the impact of poverty on health.
Get to grips with the health inequalities that many people face, and how you can help put things right. Learn about the causes and effects of health inequalities, and find out about the ways in which GPs and healthcare staff can do their bit to make a difference.
We hope that after attending your skills, outlook and understanding will have been transformed and you will feel more hopeful in your vital grassroots work.
A certificate of attendance will be awarded digitally to all participants after the training day. This will include CPD Points.
Lunch and refreshments are included. Dietary requirements can be specified on the order form.
The LifeCentre has full disabled access and facilities, including disabled parking, a deaf loop, automatic doors, a lift and disabled toilets on each of the three floors.
