Reducing Health Inequalities

Arranging and coordinating networks and events which have a focus on reducing health inequalities.

We are commissioned to design, deliver and offer facilitation support to workshops, conferences and other events for the NHS, Local Authorities and other partners. This can include arranging a specialist speaker for a conference or workshop to full event coordination, arranging venue, specialist speakers and specialist content and delivering participative workshop activities that support improvement planning. We have extensive subject knowledge of health inequalities and the NHS work plans and programmes designed to reduce those inequalities, for example STOMP, LeDeR and the Annual Health Check campaign. We have well developed networks that we can draw upon to support delivery.

Target Audience:

Health and social care organisations, other public or voluntary sector organisations

From an hour to a full one or two day event

Janice qualified as a social worker in 1986 and has worked with people with learning disabilities for her entire career. She was also a short break foster carer for children with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities for 14 years and credits that experience with enriching and positively influencing both her work and her life. Her first post was a Social Worker in a Community Learning Disability team where she soon became involved in the hospital closure programme, supporting people to move into homes of their own. She then moved into provider services and as Principal Officer in a Local Authority, managed the whole range of LA services including supported living, short breaks, day and employment services and the assessment and care management team of social workers. 

Janice spent 14 years working in a joint health and social care post as Head of Integrated commissioning and has a passion for achieving success through commissioning improved person-centred outcomes for people by collaboration and co-production.

Janice is an independent consultant and takes the lead for health on the NWTDT/Pathways team, promoting stronger systems to deliver good population health for people with learning disabilities. The team’s work is focussed on promoting the prevention of health inequalities, health protection and health improvement across the whole health and social care system. She also takes the lead on supporting our two Joint Training Partnerships based in Greater Manchester and Lancashire and South Cumbria.

When she is not working Janice likes to spend time exploring new places and countries, learning languages very badly and attends as much live theatre and music as she can fit in.
