DHSC launches call for evidence

DHSC has launched a Call for Evidence for their Major Conditions Strategy, announced in January this year.

They would like to hear from individuals who have lived experience, either as patients, services users or carers as well as health and social care professionals.

We are pleased that the Government is working towards a model of “preserving good health” and will be submitting evidence. However, we are concerned that the field has been narrowed to just six conditions.

Geographical differences in outcomes aren’t limited to six issues – they go far further and far deeper and health inequalities are caused by a range of other factors, not always obviously defined as ‘health’.

In order to truly reduce health inequalities, we need an environment where there is equal opportunity to prevent disease from happening in the first place.
Read more about why we think the Major Conditions Strategy requires major conditions in our recent blog.
