The Global University of Poverty - Curricula Welcome

End Poverty is number 1 job of any keynsian and millennials; future capitalism

Opportunities and threats of health summits

Health and social care is at a crossroads – with signs pointing to integration, competition, prevention and personalisation. The commissioning landscape is creating new sets of challenges but also new opportunities. Better engagement with patients, carers and communities is rightly growing in importance. And the influence and impact of social enterprises and charities in the field is bigger than it has ever been.

Fit for the Future: Leading the way in Health and Care, Social Enterprise UK’s sixth annual health conference, is a practical one-day event for social enterprises, charities, housing associations, local authorities, CCGs, health and wellbeing boards, and those within the NHS. It is designed to help all delegates build partnerships, gain insight from experts, learn from frontline practitioners, and debate and shape the future of health and care.
