How can government, employers and others act together for better working-age health and a thriving workforce?

For too long, our working-age health challenge has been overlooked. This event will bring commissioners, partners and key stakeholders together to discuss the ‘case for action’ for the new independent Commission on Healthier Working Lives which aims to address the decline in working-age health. The event will be held Tuesday 16 January, 16.00–17.30, followed by a drinks reception. Register here
