Cratus is delighted to announce that, in partnership with Public Policy Projects, we will be running a new series of breakfast events focusing on all the big issues for those in and engaging with local government. This builds on PPP’s already well established and very successful series of breakfast focusing on all matters health related.
Public Policy Projects is led by Stephen Dorrell who was an MP between 1979 and 2015, he served for four years as Chairman of the House of Commons Health Select Committee from 2010 to 2014. In the 1990s he was a full member of Prime Minister John Major’s Cabinet for almost three years, whilst serving as both Secretary of State for National Heritage and then Secretary of State for Health until the 1997 general election.
We will be kicking off this series on the 9th November with Duncan Selbie, Chief Executive of Public Health England, and Councillor Darren Rodwell, the Leader of the London borough of Barking and Dagenham, discussing public health. We will explore the role of local government, successes to date, ongoing challenges and what the private sector can do in the fight for better health outcomes. We believe this will be invaluable not just to those directly responsible for delivering public health services but involved in housing provision, reimagining the urban realm and designing public transport systems.
