The Public Health Collaboration will be a charity focused on supporting research and investigating pressing public health issues concerning the UK. On a quarterly basis we will publicly publish reports on these issues alongside coordinated campaigns for change.
In the UK 25% of adults are obese, the highest prevalence in Europe, and type 2 diabetes has risen by 65% in the past 10 years with no sign of slowing down, both cost the NHS £16 billion a year. The PHC will illuminate the solutions to turn it all around.
Through INDIEGOGO we need to initially raise £5,000 to help set us up as a charity, fund our team to write our first report to be published in April, as well as support our ambitious research and campaign plans to empower the public and medical community.
The group of doctors include deputy chair of the British Medical Association Dr. Kailash Chand OBE, dietitian Dr. Trudi Deakin, cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, psychiatrist Dr. Tamsin Lewis, general practitioner Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, clinical psychologist Dr. Jen Unwin, diabetologist Dr. David Cavan, general practitioner Dr. Katharine Morrison, general practitioner Dr. David Unwin, general practitioner Dr. Joanne McCormack, general practitioner Dr. Ian Lake and general practitioner Dr. Ayan Panja.
