Tackling Health Inequalities across Midlands and East of England (Cohort 10)


The programme is being delivered in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ambitions of the Long-Term Plan and NHS People Plan. Throughout the pandemic, leaders have had to operate beyond their comfort zone. Leaders at all levels have risen to the challenge in what has been an unprecedented year for the NHS. We need to recognise this talent; unleash their potential and we can do this through the power of mentoring. For this to be effective, individuals need to be upskilled in the delivery of mentor-led interventions. For example: developing their leadership capabilities as mentors who are compassionate, inclusive and distributive; to support innovation, new ways of working and sustainability; and support them in developing behaviours that enable them to deal with issues of equality, diversity and inclusion, particularly in the current context.

Two webinars designed to provide a practical approach to Population Health Management and a unique insight into the behaviour science of leading and managing change to address inequalities.

In partnership with the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) and business psychologists, Carter Corson

At the end of these two webinars, participants will have:

  1. A solid understanding of Population Health Management and how important it is as a concept to address inequalities.
  2. An insight into the some of the behaviour science techniques that can help to make change project more successful
  3. Fresh idea and renewed confidence to tackle inequalities in their own communities in collaboration with others


Dates and times

Session 1 -25th January 2022 10:00 to 12:30

Session 2 -8th February 2022 17:00 – 19:30


Programme structure:

Session 1.  Tackling health inequalities through a practical approach to Population Health Management

The first session will be facilitated by the National Association of Primary Care who have been one of the leading players in developing and promoting Population Health Management as the most effective way to address health inequalities.

This session starts with a very accessible take on ideas behind the theory of Population Health Management.  It cuts through the complexity of the different definitions, theory and guidance.  From there, it brings the concept alive with practical examples and case studies from around the country, before moving on to help you think about how to get start in your own community.

The team from NAPC include primary and secondary care doctors, public health professionals, change facilitators and data analysts who share their own perspectives and lessons learned from their own experiences.


Session 2.  Equally healthy – leading with compassion to reduce health inequalities in your community


Having whet your appetite for Population Health Management, this webinar builds on the first session to delve into the question of how we can affect real and lasting change in our communities.

We will be taking a different route into the perennial challenges of health inequalities and population health by exploring lived experiences from your population in advance of the session to reflect on the realities of ‘health inequalities’ in human terms and how you could usefully help, sharing thoughts with other participants.  Where possible, we’d love it if you would bring a real change you’d like to see in your community – then you can leave the session with an actionable action plan.  Don’t worry if you have yet to settle on one, you can still enjoy learning how to have better conversations with communities using psychology.

On the workshop, we share behavioural insights tools from social psychology and use a systemic lens to consider the impact of exclusion, from digital skills to those excluded from equal health due to their socio-economic or ethnic background, culture or education; resulting in communities who live shorter lives, with more pain and higher incidence of chronic conditions.

We will explore how to have different conversations with your community, and how you might use psychology to influence a mindset shift around health inequalities.

You will learn about the neuroscience of compassion – when and how it can shut down; and how to ensure that compassion and inclusion are woven into your leadership and any decisions about citizens when designing primary care pathways.

Figuring out how to create inclusive, equally healthy communities might not be a comfortable process, but if you are joining this session, we suspect you know the uncomfortable truth already. Health inequalities are unfair – and it is time to act; time to really collaborate across the system – and to have conversations with our citizens about their part to play in leading healthier lives.

This session will be facilitated by Carter Corson, a firm of specialist busines psychologists, who have been working with health systems for over 20 years to better understand how people and organisations behave.
