Looking ahead – more of the same will not suffice Cancelled

King's Building, Strand Campus, London

26 Mar
2020 Robert Lechler 1560x880 @2x
Professor Sir Robert Lechler
Part of King's Lectures 2020: the Biomedical and Health Revolution

This event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. A new date will be announced later in the year.

All countries around the world are confronted by the challenge of making their healthcare systems sustainable. Such systems are squeezed between two irresistible forces, the escalating demands of ageing populations with multimorbid disease and the increasing costs of new technologies. Unless there is a change of approach the scandal of health inequality will only worsen; for the first time we are seeing a reversal in the increase in life expectancy in socially deprived regions of the UK.

In this lecture Professor Lechler will discuss how we can achieve affordable health gain for all, followed by a panel discussion with leaders in the field.

This is a free event, which means we overbook to allow for no-shows and avoid empty seats. This means we cannot guarantee all ticket holders a place. Admission is on a first come, first served basis. Those without tickets will not be admitted. We will not be admitting people ten minutes after the start time, to minimize disruption.
