Commissioning to tackle health inequalities in Gypsy and Traveller communities
This conference, taking place on Thursday 26 February in Birmingham, will focus on effective commissioning, sharing the outcomes of the Health Inclusion Project, hearing from national speakers with responsibility for tackling health inequalities, and breakout sessions which will look at effective practice.
The Department of Health funded a National Gypsy and Traveller Health Inclusion Project, which was undertaken by two key agencies which work with Gypsy and Traveller communities, Leeds Gypsy & Traveller Exchange, and Friends, Families and Travellers. An important way to improve the health of disadvantaged groups is by more effective commissioning of services.
Gypsy and Traveller people continue to experience significant inequality in healthcare access and outcomes, including low life expectancy, high co-morbidity, poor mental health, and poor infant and maternal outcomes.
The cost of the conference is £130 plus VAT for full price delegates and £95 plus VAT for delegates from small charities.
