The BPS would like to hear from members with practical case studies or academic research on what can be done to tackle the causes of preventable ill-health.
Prevention is a key policy priority for the BPS; we have already convened a roundtable with several division chairs and topic experts and will be engaging with members further in the coming months as we develop our vision of prevention.
As part of this, we are also hoping to make a strong response to the Government’s consultation addressing the three main areas laid out in the document:
There are 21 specific questions in total, with 16 that are relevant to the BPS (listed below).
Members are invited to respond by answering those questions or providing evidence or practical case studies relevant to them.
In particular we would draw your attention to question 21:
This is a question we aim to address as we develop our vision of what prevention means for the BPS, and would value your input on what is missing in current policy.
Send your comments to [email protected] using the form below.
The deadline for responses is the end of play on Thursday the 26th of September.
