Wider Social Impact: NHS as an ‘anchor Institution’

Work is underway around the NHS as an ‘anchor institution’ work programme, which will be building on the recent report by the Health Foundation (August 2019) on Building healthier communities: the role of the NHS as an anchor institution.

PHE has developed a Knowledge Hub page designed as a community of practice, as a place to share ideas, and discussion. Materials from a recent webinar on inequalities and inclusive growth and anchor institutions and the recording will be added to the forum.

Please sign up to the KHub and join our page.

NHS England and NHS Improvement are continuing to build a picture of what else is underway across the system – if please let us know anything else that you are aware of beyond those examples already detailed in the Health Foundation report, please get in touch – england.anchors@nhs.net
