Looking forward to tearing more about @WildlifeTrusts's 2030 Strategy, and the challenges & opportunities that they face in achieving their goals #NatureSeries
.@KathrynABrown opens her presentation by giving a potted history of The Wildwlife Trusts, going back to their foundation in 1916, through to present day as the UKs 7th largest landholder with 2,300 nature reserves with over 3k staff, 37k volunteers & 900k members #NatureSeries
Brown moves on to announcing the 2030 Strategy - which not only continues to move forward on its founding goals of preserving nature, but also reversing the trend of biodiversity loss, with an increased focus on nature-based solutions to help reverse & decline #NatureSeries Image

Lots of chat on here today about the ‘lack of evidence’ for #SocialPrescribing, following the publication of yet another study, so I thought I would make a few, hopefully obvious, points…
Social Prescribing is simply a term to describe an effective mechanism for supporting people to connect to community based activity - either via a community connector, or one of the amazing Link Workers throughout the country
It responds to the fact that at least one in five GP appointments are for non medical need - it isn’t about over medicalising community support - it is about not medicalising social issues

The @NHS_RHO is a do-tank not a think-tank #RHOConf22.

It’s a place where things get done @Voa1234

How an org values it’s ethnic minority staff is a good barometer of how well patients are likely to feel irrespective of skin colour

It’s about #leadership
Now @DrHNaqvi starting with a quote from #JRRTolkein #RHOConf22

We must break down #inequalities

The @NHS_RHO set up to:
Synthesise insight
Inform policy
Enable transformation

Work programme uses global data driven evidence

Year 1 report:
What drives racial inequities? @D_R_Williams1 #RHOConf22

Socioeconomic status SES matters
In the UK for every £1 a white person has, a Black/Bangladeshi has 10p

But after SES taken into account, it’s about race
Not about “trying harder”
Neighbourhood opportunity matters

This thread is about steps/ideas that can be done to make healthcare more sustainable. Evidence for these will vary, but Im hoping this will increase awareness and start the dialogue. This will also help guide the direction of future shows.
Early goals of care discussions.
We shouldnt be having these conversations after putting our loved ones on life support. Lets have honest conversations with our loved ones. Lets respect their values.
Furthermore, the cost of taking of ICU pts is crazy.
-1% of GDP
-Population is aging
We really need to think about who is actually going to BENEFIT from an ICU admission

With the opportunity to engage and influence Draft #PCN guidance, I will do a full twitter thread on each aspect of the new Service Spec!

The aim is to be objective, so there will be no screaming etc!

Why on twitter
1. I would like it to be public
2. Easy to share images
Spec ONE - Structured Medicine Reviews #PCN
As a concept SMRs are a positive initiative, polypharmacy should be addressed.
The draft assumes that the SMRs will be delivered in principle by Clinical Pharmacists. Funding for the post is available via PCN monies therefore, should not impact GP workload.

Lots of chatter regarding #SocialPrescribing over the past few days - some great comments & ideas warranting sensible debate, some inevitable & understandable misunderstanding, & some attempts to undermine the great work being delivered by people & communities across the county
#SocialPrescribing enables all local agencies to refer people to a ‘link worker’ to connect them into community-based support, building on what matters to the person as identified through shared decision making/personalised care and support planning
It is not ‘signposting’, it is not a case of ‘doctor knows best’, it is not ‘over-medicalising community’, it is not a top down initiative - it builds on the assets people have in their own lives and helps them develop non biomedical solutions to improve their health & wellbeing
