Festival of Health

Date: 10 October 2014 at 6:00PM - 11 October 2014 at 5:30PM

Location: The Watershed, Bristol

Health festival to explore the big issues facing the NHS. This event, organised by Bristol Health Partners and the Festival of Ideas, will explore the big issues facing the NHS and health today

The NHS is one of the great success stories of the past 70 years bringing free treatment and better health to millions. But we also know that the NHS - and all of us - faces real challenges. These challenges provoke many questions. How does the NHS work? Do we have a caring society? Should we focus more on prevention of illness through better living and creating healthier cities? How should we use technology? The Festival of Health will seek to open up these and other discussions and explore the current - and potential future - shape and state of our health and care system.

A mental health discussion will be included in the 'healthy cities and communities' part of the programme on 11 October.

Speakers include James Eldred, clinical director of Bristol Mental Health, Tim Williams, clinical director of AWP's specialist drug and alcohol services and Carol Metters, chief executive of Missing Link.

The full programme and ticket details are on the Bristol Health Partners website.
