Preventing Illness by Tackling Cold Homes: National Guidance, Local Implementation

Free 1-day workshop, Bristol, 23 September

28 August 2015

We’re teaming up with Public Health England to run a national workshop in Bristol on 23 September 2015.  It’s proving to be very popular with only a few tickets remaining.

Taking place at the Watershed as part of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital, the workshop explores the national case for action to improve health outcomes by tackling cold homes, as laid out in the new guidance from NICE published in March 2015. And it will examine local examples of efforts that are putting the NICE recommendations into practice – and share the practical lessons learned in doing so.

An impressive line-up of speakers include: Dr David Pencheon, Director of the NHS’ Sustainable Development Unit; Dr Angie Bone, Head of Extreme Events and Health Protection at Public Health England; and Dr David Sloan from NICE Public Health Advisory Committee; as well as senior figures from Bristol’s health sector and innovative practitioners from Islington Council and Wigan Council.

Bristol’s elected Mayor, George Ferguson, will join us to explain why affordable warmth matters to Bristol’s goal to be a healthy, happy city.
