Please register for the event via this link:

We will have the replay of the video available for 72 hours after the event for those of you that can’t make the new date. It will also be uploaded to YouTube in the future.

Covid-19 has shown how vulnerable society, our economy, and day-to-day lives are to illness, but despite this we have not valued the pivotal role of good health.

In this talk, former Chief Medical Officer for England Dame Sally Davies and public health doctor Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard will outline why health is truly our most untapped opportunity for prosperity and happiness in the 21st century, individually and jointly as whole nations.

They will explore how through collectively valuing health – civil society and the private sector – we can radically change the wider health environment while expanding the founding principles of the NHS. They will explain how the NHS should shift from a focus on illness to become a true health service, encompassing a National Care Service, and how this would pay off for all.

These online events are free for everyone to access. However, donations are an extremely important source of support for us and we would be most grateful if you are able to contribute. We are a small, independent charity and receive no government funding. Our income from ticket sales and venue hire has been significantly reduced and will continue to fall. Donations, alongside our membership subscriptions are vital to our development and survival.

Please donate via our JustGiving page. Every donation we receive makes a difference. Thank you for your support.


Dame Sally Davies is UK Special Envoy on Antimicrobial Resistance.

Before this, she was Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for England and Chief Medical Adviser to the UK government from March 2011 to September 2019, having held the post on an interim basis since June 2010.

Jonathan Pearson-Stuttard is a Public Health Doctor and Epidemiologist at Imperial College London and studies trends in chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity, specifically how these conditions increase the risk of several others and how that impacts patients, populations and health systems. This research has been published in leading journals such as Nature, the Lancet journals and the British Medical Journal.
