NHS should lend a helping hand to local communities

A new report by the Health Foundation argues that the NHS could make a greater contribution to improving social and economic conditions for people in the local areas in which it operates. The report explores the idea of the NHS as an “anchor institution” – a large, public sector organisation with sizeable assets that could be used to support community wealth building and development, and in doing so, advance the welfare of local people. […] The report draws on research commissioned by the Health Foundation and produced by the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES) and The Democracy Collaborative (TDC), as well as interviews with a range of stakeholders, and workshops with an expert advisory group.
