Ep. 35 How to tackle health inequalities, Prof Durka Dougall & Dr Andy Knox

CognitivePublishing · Ep. 35 How to tackle health inequalities, Prof Durka Dougall & Dr Andy Knox

In episode 35 of the National Health Executive podcast, we were joined by Professor Durka Dougall who is the chair of The Health Creation Alliance and Dr Andy Knox who is Associate Medical Director at Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board.

In the episode we spoke about population health, population health management, public health, health inequalities and everything in between. We also went into how all of the aforementioned phrases factor into combatting health inequalities.

The podcast explores how both guests first entered this particular part of the health sector and their passion behind it.

Dr Knox discusses the epiphany he had while working as a GP that allowed him to think differently and enter a role leadership role where he helped engage local communities in thinking more about their own health.

Prof Dougall also discusses her exasperation at the lack of progress on the health inequalities front despite widespread acknowledgement of the presence of avoidable issues.
