The Chief Medical Officer in England, Professor Dame Sally Davies, is calling for a unified approach by providers in order to revolutionise healthcare by 2040. The Chief Medical Officers wants the role of health to be repositioned in society, with healthy behaviours being normalised as well as making it easier for individuals to make healthy choices.
Professor Dame Sally Davies discusses in the annual report that we should apply a great deal of optimism to the forthcoming two decades as the environment is shifting to one where healthy behaviours are created, and healthy choices are made easier. However, she stresses that a unified approach is essential for securing a healthier future with reduced inequalities.
In the annual report, Professor Dame Sally Davies compiles ground-breaking research and discusses new technologies, all of which can help individuals to self-manage long-term health conditions which can dramatically change the delivery of healthcare across England.
The Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, explains; “Health is our main asset as a nation – a healthier population translates to a healthier economy. By repositioning health and reshaping our environment, we can make it easier to live well for longer and reduce the gap in health inequalities between the richest and poorest in our society. We can and should make our environment fairer and healthier for all.”
In the annual report, Professor Dame Sally Davies calls for the liberation of innovative technology so that every patient in England can benefit. She adds that we should also utilise technology in order to deliver quick, significant and, above all, safe changes to patient care in England.
