The role of business in influencing positive health outcomes – for better or for worse – has not historically been a major part of the debate around public health. ‘Health & Safety’ is mainly about safety.

The Rebuilding Britain Index Report (wave 7)
This latest edition of the RBI not only outlines the continuing scale of the challenge facing the UK, but is very much intended to act as a blueprint to help the new Government navigate the issue over the coming years to ensure that what action it takes can have the maximum positive impact where and how it is most needed. The recommendations form a self-fulfilling virtuous cycle, where investment in economic infrastructure will positively effect health outcomes, while improving health outcomes will, in turn, positively effect economic output.
The Rebuilding Britain Index Report (wave 6)
The findings in wave 6 of the RBI reveal that the current cost of living crisis presents a real danger of widening the existing inequalities found between and within different parts of the UK. Some of the findings that detail how difficult some households are finding it to cope in the current financial climate make for challenging reading. We must, however, use them to reaffirm how action is urgently needed, at a fundamental and structural level, to ensure we address the root causes of these inequalities and build better equity between our communities and resilience within them.
The Rebuilding Britain Index Report (wave 5)
The critical issue considered in this report is what steps the UK needs to take in order to build healthier infrastructures capable of supporting healthier behaviours in people’s everyday lives. The UK cannot hope to improve health outcomes, a vital prerequisite if we are to truly level up our communities, without considering the need to improve local infrastructure.
