Watch: NS and NHSA webinar on using universities and healthcare to level up across the UK

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Professor Clare Bambra and Dr Seamus O'Neill discuss how the North's health assetts can play a role in the levelling up strategy. 

By NS Events

Across the north of England, there is an established regional inequality in access to healthcare, which contributes to a productivity divide as well as a reduced life expectancy. This has been exacerated by the pandemic. In order to tackle these inequalities and level up the economy, full use needs to be made of the North’s health assets across universities, local authorities and hospitals.

On 24 September, the New Statesman virtually convened its annual conference during Labour week, with a series of panel events, interviews and guest speeches from some of the Labour party’s most senior members, as well as business leaders and experts. An online panel discussion and live Q&A, sponsored by NHSA, explored these key issues. The panel, chaired by New Statesman Britain editor Anoosh Chakelian, brought together Jonathan Ashworth MP, Emma Hardy MP, New Castle University Professor of Public Health Clare Bambra and NHSA CEO Dr Seamus O’Neil to discuss how the North’s universities and the NHS can play a role in the levelling up strategy.
