‘All Our Health’ is call to action for health and care professionals, to embed and extend prevention, health protection and promotion of wellbeing and resilience into practice. But why is it important that we understand prevention, protection and promotion as healthcare professionals?  The Five Year Forward View (2014) puts forward a strong case for prevention and public health by stating: 

"The future health of millions of children, the sustainability of the NHS, and the economic prosperity of Britain all now depend on a radical upgrade in prevention and public health. Twelve years ago Derek Wanless’ health review warned that unless the country took prevention seriously we would be faced with a sharply rising burden of avoidable illness. That warning has not been heeded - and the NHS is on the hook for the consequences."

Viv Bennett ( Public Health England's Chief Nurse) builds on this by stating: 

"It is time to get serious about prevention! It is time for health and care professionals to act to make a difference! As health and care professionals we have relationships with individual people, families and communities and reach across all ages and all places.  This means that there is a huge opportunity ‘for health promoting practice’ to make a difference to health outcomes and health inequalities.  In addition acting collectively we can be a force for change in building a culture of health in our society."

All Our Health is for all of us and the approach is much needed to both sustain the NHS and to make a difference to health outcomes and health inequalities.  Healthcare professionals across the board can make a huge difference and by acting collectively can be a massive force for change. 

This tweetchat aims to explore why it is important to get serious about prevention, protection and promotion and what actions health care professionals can take to be drive change in healthcare.
