From Rhetoric to Reality Health and Education

Sprache: EN

Eingesandt von Jodie Crossley

In January 2014, the Welsh NHS Confederation launched its discussion paper entitled “From Rhetoric to Reality - NHS Wales in 10 years’ time”.

This briefing, produced jointly with NIACE Cymru, the national voice of lifelong learning in Wales, highlights the benefits of education and learning on health and well-being, and explores the potential role of education in reducing pressure on a wide range of health services, at the same time as driving the quality and timeliness of services.

Key points

• Education and lifelong learning are key factors in determining the health outcomes of the population. Those who participate in adult learning see improvements in health, well-being and health-related behaviours.
• There is a growing body of evidence to demonstrate the role of education and learning in aiding treatment of both physical and mental ill health.
• Education can play a key role in supporting Welsh Government to improve public health in Wales and implement ‘prudent healthcare’.
• There are wider benefits to be drawn from working with the public and third sector more broadly to provide quality services and person-centred care.
