Reinforcing system-wide efforts, broadened stakeholder engagement and data-driven strategies to drive tangible health equity outcomes 

Despite its status as a core founding principle of ICS development, optimising the well-being of your local population and ensuring equitable access to care for all is no easy task. However, with ICSs maturing, and national guidance for both adults and CYP available through the Core20PLUS5 framework, now is the time to drive forwards system and place-level action to deliver on local population needs and improve outcomes.

The HSJ Reducing Health Inequalities Forum unites 100+ senior leaders working across the NHS and wider system – from chief executives, to clinical and population health management leads – to discuss short-term tactics and long-term preventative strategies to deal with existing and reduce future inequalities. 

Attending allows you to explore with your peers how to reduce outcome disparities across high priority clinical areas, and find new ways to expand access and deliver services to currently underserved population groups. Keep informed with news and updates about the 2025 Forum here.

The 2024 Forum focused on themes including:

  • Discussing the addition of CYP to the CORE20PLUS5 blueprint which serves to make a difference at the early stages of life and pay long-term dividends
  • Taking a population health approach and leveraging behavioural science to ensure effective resource allocation, intervention and impact  
  • Developing strategies to optimise prevention, service access, early diagnosis and treatment in hard-to-reach population groups  
  • Moving from project-based work to embedding health inequalities within the heart of daily operations 
  • Leveraging cross-sector engagement to address the wider determinants of health and expand stakeholder engagement


To provide insight and opinion on the above areas, we had an expert speaker collective who provided their vast experience, skills and knowledge to the sessions:
