Social prescribing and equity of access

Helen Stokes-Lampard  | 

“I see a future where people's whole genome will be known at a very early stage in their life, and we will be able to look at social factors and health inequalities and target help and support earlier for those in greater need. There will be huge logistical challenges, of course, but this technology isn't going away, this is here. It's how we apply it for the greatest good that matters.”

In this week’s episode of The G Word #sciencepodcast, our CEO Chris Wigley is joined by Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Professor of GP Education at the University of Birmingham and Chair of the National Academy for Social Prescribing. Still a practising GP in Staffordshire, Helen is a huge advocate for mental health and has published several papers on women’s health and COVID-19.

Today, Helen talks about equity of access for patients, social prescribing and genomics. She also talks about her early career and her role as Chair of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges.
