Donald Acheson

  • The Acheson Report concluded that

the "weight of scientific evidence

supports a socio-economic explanation

of health inequalities."

  • 'Poverty, low wages and occupational stress, unemployment, poor housing, environmental pollution, poor education, limited access to transport and shops, crime and disorder, and a lack of recreational facilities all have had an impact on people's health'

(Acheson 1998a)

Wanless findings 2004
  • Numerous policy statements and initiatives in the field of public health have not resulted on a rebalancing of policy away from health care (a “national sickness service”) to health (a “national health service”).
  • There must be a realignment of incentives in the system to focus on reducing the burden of disease and tackling the key lifestyle and environmental risks.
  • Recognising the NHS is only one contributor to delivering the public health agenda, there needs to be an alignment of targets between the Planning and Priorities Framework for the NHS and the Comprehensive Performance Assessment for local government.

To realise the potential in partnership working there is a need to:

  • challenge existing services
  • coordinate actions and to engage different voices in decision making
  • understand that partnerships operate within settings dominated by hierarchies and markets
  • Acknowledge that seating different people around a table without understanding these other pressures on their behaviour does not necessarily constitute a new way of working.

Without such changes

“partnerships represent little more than the key players suppressing mutual loathing in the interests of mutual greed.”
